PEORIA -- Vectora Transportation, LLC last week opened a new distribution center intended to handle the increasing amount of freight in wind energy components now moving through Illinois.
According to a company press release:
The facility is served by the Toledo, Peoria, and Western Railway (TPW), enabling access for the site to five Class I railroads (UP, BNSF, CN, CSX, and NS). The Vectora facility offers more than 15 acres of storage space and 5,000 feet of live loading/unloading track, and the adjacent TPW yard can facilitate the termination of both manifest and unit train service at the site.
