Watco's Jacksonville Port Terminal Railroad launches operations

The Jacksonville Port Terminal Railroad (JXPT), a subsidiary of Watco Transportation Services LLC, has reached a definitive agreement with the Jacksonville Port Authority (JAXPORT) to lease and operate 10 miles of rail line in Jacksonville, Fla.

JXPT marked its startup on Wednesday. It's Watco's 37th short line and its first railroad in Florida. The railroad interchanges with Norfolk Southern Railway and CSX.

Currently, four customers are being served by rail at the port, Watco officials said in a press release yesterday. Commodities being served by rail at the port include automobiles, chemicals, farm and food products, intermodal containers, and pulp and paper.
Next stop, Willoughby
