Specialized Handling

 

Bulk Materials Handling


When Capitol handles your materials in bulk, you save money and serve your customers more efficiently. Shipping your materials in bulk increases your product-per-load ratio, resulting in lower overall shipping costs. Storing your materials closer to your customer reduces transit time for Just-In-Time delivery.

Cost Savings


As much as 15% of a truck's load can be taken up by packaging. Eliminate the packaging and you move more of your product per load. Save even more by choosing rail over road. With Class A railroad lines (Canadian Pacific Rail System) connected to our own rail siding, Capitol transloads your bulk materials to the warehouse for storage or to trucks for end delivery.

Special Equipment


Capitol is uniquely qualified to receive your bulk products and package them to your specifications. Our investment in the special equipment necessary for handling bulk sets us apart from our competition.

Railyard and Transloading Capacity


Capitol's extensive railyard features seven rail spurs on 58 acres with the ability to store 80 railcars on the grounds. We have our own track mobile and the unusual benefit of indoor rail offloading. The size and scope of our operations ensure that we have the ability to move your products where they need to go.
