Transloading in Imperial Valley, CA

Ecology Operates over 2 Miles of Rail for Transloading

Our Imperial Valley Facility is centrally located between Yuma, Blythe and Mexicali.

With over 2 miles of rail, we are capable of shipping full unit trains (200-240 containers) directly to the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach for export, savings thousands of dollars in trucking costs, as well as mitigating any logistical challenge.  We can handle 20 ft and 40 ft shipping containers, manifest rail cars (e.g., hoppers, box cars, flats and gondolas) for loading or unloading at our site.  With our large trucking fleet and our extensive knowledge in loading/unloading rail cars we can satisfy all your needs.
