GRAYRIDGE, MISSOURI, U.S. — Lansing Trade Group announced on Jan. 9 that it plans to construct a high speed shuttle train facility on the Union Pacific Railroad near Grayridge, Missouri, U.S.

Construction is expected to begin this month with plans to receive grain by fall. Once completed, the facility will be capable of loading 110-car shuttle trains. The state-of-the-art design includes high speed truck receiving, a high capacity dryer and the ability to receive multiple commodities. The facility will be Lansing’s second shuttle facility in the delta region and add to the existing network of facilities operated by the company.

“We are excited to build our delta presence north toward Southeast Missouri” said Chief Executive Officer Bill Krueger. “This opportunity allows Lansing to bring value to producers in this rich production area of the Missouri Bootheel by providing access to a high speed UP served shuttle loading facility. The operation will expand our origination depth and enhance service opportunities for our destination customers.”
