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 can ship full unit trains (200-240 containers) directly to the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach for export. This can save you thousands of dollars in trucking costs and mitigate logistical challenges.

We handle 20 ft and 40 ft shipping containers and manifest rail cars (e.g., hoppers, box cars, flats, and gondolas) for loading or unloading at our site.
