Expanding International Trade Services
This month Capitol began shipping racks for axle parts ultimately destined for Mexico used by a major Wisconsin auto manufacturer. Capitol shipped the products using its rail facilities, which connects to the Canadian Pacific Rail system using its own rail siding. Capitol expects to ship approximately 60 railcars ultimately destined for Mexico within the next two months.
The shipments are part of Capitol’s effort to grow its international services. Other initiatives include pursuing Customs public bonded warehousing space, and inclusion in a possible future Dane County Foreign Trade Zone.
Capitol is a full distribution company located in Windsor, WI, providing transportation, warehousing and 3PL services.
