Intermodal Connections Opening Opportunity in Arkansas
Railroads help form a seamless and integrated freight transportation web in partnership with river ports and motor carriers in Arkansas. With freight rail a key component, intermodal facilities in the Natural State provide access to markets across the U.S. and around the world.
Arkansas's 23 freight railroads operate over 2,505 miles of track and employ 3,306 in the Natural State.* It would have taken approximately 8.8 million additional truckloads to move the 158.6 million tons of freight that moved by rail in Arkansas in 2017. Intermodal and nonmetallic minerals make up the majority of freight rail shipments beginning in Arkansas. Intermodal is the largest rail import to the state.
