Trans Coastal Supply Co, Inc Expansion
Trans Coastal Supply Company, Inc based in Decatur IL recently purchased the assets of Schmuhl International Commodity Services in Kansas City KS. SICS was a third party trans load facility servicing multiple export customers established in 2011. Trans Coastal Kansas City (TCKC) is located on the KCTL Railroad and can receive grain and products from the BNSF, UP, NS, KCS, and CP. Current plans are to increase DDGS loadings in the KC market with potential to add other commodities as capacity allows.
Bob and Pam spent the first few weeks of October updating the facility, staff and systems to replicate loading and drayage from PCG and Decatur. Fourteen employees remained on staff with the acquisition. Initial capacity looks to be 200 containers per week with the ability to increase to 400 containers as allocation can be found.
In addition, the City of Edgerton approved zoning changes to a Greenfield site outside of the new BN Logistics Park KC (LPKC) gate in which concept plans are now being submitted to the City for approval at the Nov 12 meeting for a truck trans load facility near LPKC. Closing on the property is subject to the final governmental approvals.
