Lumber, I-beams, rebar, poles, and heavy equipment. These are just a few of the items that can be handled through the reload and cross-docking facilities found on the Raritan Central and Pennsylvania & Southern Railways. Our reloads provide shippers with ample indoor and outdoor storage space, daily rail service, proximity to all major Northeast markets, and convenient highway access. This enables products to be moved faster, more economically, and with less hassle.

All of our reloads are served 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Switches can be made at certain times each day or on-demand. Additional daily switching is free. Depending on the railroad, interchange is handled daily with either Norfolk Southern or CSX, allowing quick access to the entire North American rail network. Our rail infrastructure provides multiple rail car spots for loading and unloading and extensive storage-in-transit capabilities for forward inventory positioning.

All reloads have both lots and warehouses available for storage. Outside storage lots range in size from 5 acres up to 400 acres. Customers who need trucking or crane/forklift services can choose from a variety of companies that are available at each location. Our Raritan Center reload also employs our own 30 ton crane which is available to customers 24/7 to speed loading and unloading of steel and other large, heavy commodities.

We also offer complete cross-dock services at the Raritan Center location. The facility is open 6 days per week from 7am to 7pm. The cross-dock is cleared to handle almost all products, including food-grade and paper-grade shipments.

Our Raritan Center operations will also soon feature the ability to reload building products and containers to and from barges at our new "Port Raritan" dock on the Raritan River. Port Raritan will provide an alternative to the congestion and resulting delays at other major area ports. Customers using Port Raritan will also be able to take advantage of the extensive warehousing, storage-in-transit, and 3PL services within the Raritan Center Business Park.
