Rickenbacker Intermodal Facility has the capacity to handle 250,000 containers annually.
The project is part of the Heartland Corridor which ships goods globally.
Non-stop travel by the container trucks enhances the environment of the region trucks are not stopping at railroad crossings to wait for trains to pass.
