ConGlobal Opens a New Container Yard/Depot at Logistics Park Kansas City to Support Imports and Exports in America’s Heartland
FORT WORTH, TX, December 14, 2023, ConGlobal the industry’s go-to expert in terminal operations, is expanding its container yard/depot network by opening a new 30+ acre U.S. Customs bonded facility within NorthPoint Development’s master-planned park surrounding BNSF’s state-of-the-art intermodal facility.
ConGlobal’s facility offers LPKC tenants and surrounding businesses a wide range of services like yard management solutions, including ground movements, site operation, yard visibility technology, storage for loaded and empty containers, container/chassis maintenance and repair, chassis start-stop, pre-trips for temperature-controlled units, refrigerated/genset rentals, and mobile fueling.
“This is our second depot embedded within a NorthPoint Development logistics park,” said Jason Simonson, ConGlobal’s Vice President, Depot Operations. “The facility is secure, fully paved, and can accommodate 5,500 TEU of empty containers, 340 wheeled parking slots, and we can pre-trip 120 refrigerated containers.”
“ConGlobal LPKCs proximity and longstanding rail relationships make us an all-in-one service partner for the surrounding warehouses and distribution centers,” explained Seana Fairchild, Chief Commercial Officer. “We can do it all: equipment, labor, operation, and maintenance and repair. And by adding our Aviro360 technology, sites can remove manual tasks like yard check, gate check-ins and tracking and tracing, saving time and money while boosting throughput.”
“We’re delighted to welcome ConGlobal to LPKC,” said Aaron Burks CEO of ColdPoint Logistics. “We’ve truly created an inland port, just southeast of Kansas City, anchored by the state-of-the-art intermodal facility operated by BNSF with access to major U.S. Ports and the heavyweight corridor.”
“ConGlobal was a strategic partner for us because of the full suite of services it offers,” said Dane Bear, Vice President of Sales at ColdPoint Logistics. “ConGlobal will spot containers and trailers at our facility and streamline shuttling cargo to the rail ramp. Our customers will benefit from the cost and time savings of transloading at our location.”
