Unit launches new website to support expended commercial activities

DENVER – OmniTRAX Logistics Services, LLC (OLS), the transloading, terminal and logistics affiliate of OmniTRAX, Inc. is rapidly expanding its service territory throughout the US in 2016. OmniTRAX, Inc., one of the largest privately held rail and transportation service companies in North America and an affiliate of The Broe Group, is promoting the unit’s growth with the launch of a new website at www.myshippingmadeeasy.com . OLS, which provides a full range of transportation and handling services, built the website to accentuate the company’s “We Make Shipping Easy” slogan.

OLS currently operates transload and terminal facilities on OmniTRAX–affiliated railroads located in Windsor, CO.; Sand Springs (Tulsa), OK; Brownsville, TX and Peru, IL. Additionally, OLS operates a transload facility in Buffalo, NY on the Buffalo & Pittsburgh Railroad. Through these existing facilities, OLS handles a diverse range of commodities, including industrial products, steel, building products, frac sand, chemicals and plastics.

To meet growing customer demand in these and other commodities, OLS is planning to expand its operating locations in 2016 to the Chicago Region, the Central Valley of California and the Southeast. Each of these new locations will be served by an OmniTRAX-affiliated railroad.

“We’re seeing strong demand for turn-key transloading and logistics services across the network of OmniTRAX–affiliated railroads. Our customers recognize the value of an integrated supply chain solution, one that combines rail, transloading and terminal services, storage solutions where necessary, and first-mile/last-mile trucking options. The professionals at OLS, in partnership with OmniTRAX–affiliated railroads, provide just that solution,” said Tim Eklund, Vice President – Transload and Logistics, OmniTRAX and President of OLS.

“While we are focusing on key regions for expansion, we will look to establish a transload terminal facility wherever we can help our customers grow. We invite any industry wanting to create more efficiency and cost-savings in their supply chain to learn more about OmniTRAX Logistics Services.”

The key features of the new OLS website include an overview of the company, a listing of locations, detailed information of each service offering and a comprehensive catalog of the products handled, which include dry and liquid bulk, metal products, consumer products, building products and project cargo.

“The OLS website is designed to provide shippers and our logistics partners with a central repository for information on end-to-end supply chain solutions. Because our audience is very busy, we made the site very user friendly by having intuitive links to services and easy access to our customer service team,” said Eklund.
