eNewsroom for: Cold Train Intermodal

Since the "Cold Train" refrigerated intermodal container rail and distribution service (between Quincy, WA and Chicago, IL) started a year ago, it has rapidly grown in popularity with produce shippers in the Pacific Northwest as well as shippers in the Midwest. Five days a week, the Cold Train service departs the Port of Quincy in central Washington loaded with fresh or frozen produce destined for the Midwest. The produce, grown and packed by local growers/packers in Washington State, is loaded into the Cold Train's modern, state-of-the-art 53-foot refrigerated containers and brought to the Port of Quincy Intermodal Terminal. At the terminal, the containers are double-stacked onto an expedited nonstop train to Chicago. On arrival in Chicago, each container is carefully placed on a truck chassis for transport to its final destination.
