About Carload Express

Carload Express, Inc. operates four shortline railroads: The Allegheny Valley Railroad (AVR) and Southwest Pennsylvania Railroad (SWP) serving western Pennsylvania, the Camp Chase Railroad (CCRA) serving central Ohio, and the Ohio Terminal Railway (OHIO) serving the Ohio River Valley bordering Ohio and West Virginia. Our dedicated, locally based management is able to offer timely and flexible service demanded by today’s fast paced supply chains while offering the inherent economies of scale that rail shipping provides. Our multiple connections to the North American rail system allow our customers to enjoy competitive freight routing options, lowering their overall shipping costs.

Carload Express, Inc. plays an important role in the communities we serve by transporting many of the basic goods used in everyday life such as the paper we read, the food we eat, the bricks, steel, and lumber we use for homebuilding, and the energy that supplies power for those homes. The 50,000 shipments we handle annually equate to roughly 200,000 fewer trucks on local highways each year, lowering congestion and road maintenance costs while significantly reducing carbon emissions and greenhouse gases.
