Carload Express, parent company of the Allegheny Valley (AVR), Southwest Pennsylvania (SWP), Camp Chase (CCRA), and Ohio Terminal (OHIO) railroads, is proud to have been selected as one of the three qualified bidders to operate rail lines owned by the SEDA-COG Joint Rail Authority (the JRA) in Central Pennsylvania. Each bidder will submit a proposal for evaluation by the JRA, who will make their selection in mid-2015. The selected rail operator would commence operations over the JRA’s lines on June 1, 2017.
Carload Express would like to thank the JRA for the opportunity to present a proposal to enter into an agreement for the operation of its rail lines for freight service. We would also like to welcome the Joint Rail Authority team that will be visiting us in early December for an inspection tour of our rail network.
The SEDA-COG Joint Rail Authority is seeking input from current and past customers of Carload Express, to document the types and sizes of customers served by our railroads, and the quality of services provided. Current and former customers may be contacted by the JRA as part of this assessment. Carload Express will contact customers with more information regarding the JRA’s survey.
