Savage to build railport in Southern Utah.

Savage is a global provider of industrial logistics infrastruture and supply chain services. The company employs about 4,000 people in over 200 locations.

The company this week announced that it plans to construct, own, and operate a multi-commodity railport in southern Utah, specifically in Iron County, which is northwest of Cedar City. The Savage Railport – Southern Utah will provide transloading services to connect supply chains for agricultural products, construction materials, and other essential commodities. The railport is expected to be operating within 12-15 months, and will provide shippers with direct access to Union Pacific rail lines.

Jason Ray, Executive Vice President and Chief Development Officer at Savage said, “We’re excited to expand our Savage Transload Network into southern Utah, adding to the more than 50 transload terminals we operate across North America. The Savage Railport – Southern Utah will support moving building and construction products, dry-bulk, and liquid-bulk materials between trucks and railcars. This transportation infrastructure investment will drive economic growth and support jobs by helping connect farmers and businesses in Cedar City, St. George, and rural communities throughout southern Utah with broader domestic and global markets.”
