Glacier State Distribution

WHAT TYPES OF MATERIALS CAN GLACIER STATE DISTRIBUTION UNLOAD?

Aggregates for highway projects

Lightweight aggregates for major buildings

Road Salt

Grain, when market conditions offer opportunities on a railroad that is not your regular carrier.

Test shipments of coal that need to be segregated from the normal supply

Decorative stone. You can reduce your cost by bringing in a carload direct from the original supplier.

Glacier State can load or unload non-contamination sensitive dry bulk flow-able commodities such as:

Stone (up to 3 inches in size) sand, sealcoat chips, lightweight aggregates, coal, salt, fertilizers, grain, feedstuffs and wood chips.

ARE YOUR RESTRICTED TO JUST YOUR KENOSHA HEADQUARTERS?

No.

Too often in rail shipping, the origin or destination shipper or receiver does not have their own rail siding, or the equipment to load or unload railcars.

Our high speed portable rail-to-truck and truck-to-rail transfer conveyors can be the solution for temporary unloading logistics.

Our equipment is very portable, we have unloaded from two different sites over sixty miles apart on the same day, or two sites 200 miles apart on consecutive days.

All we need is good firm flat ground adjacent to the track.

One of our conveyors is specifically designed to fit the conveyor and the truck being loaded within a fifty foot right of way from the center of track. The conveyor is self propelled by a diesel engine, and moves itself by hydraulics from one railcar to the next.

No site electricity is required.

WHAT KIND OF CAPACITY CAN GLACIER STATE HANDLE?

With good ground, product, and railcar conditions we can handle 1000 tons in a relatively easy day, the one-day record is 1400 tons.

As long as the railcar gates are easy to open, it largely becomes a question of having enough trucks to catch the product.

When unloading into trucks, it is possible to load a 22 ton quad axle with a skilled driver in 2 minutes with free flowing product.

Going to a ground pile, we unloaded 900 tons of sealcoat chips in 3 hours.

WHO ARE SOME OF OUR CLIENTS?

The list of client companies for these services includes 3M, Canadian National Railway, Canadian Pacific Railway, Cumberland Elkhorn Coal, American Materials, Kentucky So-Lite, Agriliance, and International Minerals & Chemicals (IMC).

Our charges are based on the volume of the total project and the timeframe it covers, and the mileage to the worksite from our Kenosha, WI base.

Steve Herr, owner of Glacier State Distribution Services has worked in and with the railroad industry for 25 years, and knows how to make it work between the railroad and the customer.
