The Central Alabama Intermodal Container Transfer Facility in Bessemer, Ala., has been operating since September, but had its official opening on Dec. 1. The $6 million hub operates on 25 acres, with an option to develop 25 additional acres, has 5,000 feet of working track, parking for 1,000 stacked 40-foot containers and 307 40-foot containers on truck chassis. The facility can move more up to 40,000 containers annually.
