Cordele Intermodal Services is a privately owned logistics provider that specializes in container handling and over the road trucking.
Direct Rail Access
Cordele Intermodal Services offers overnight rail access, three times weekly, to the Georgia Ports Authority in Savannah, Georgia. CIS provides cost savings, traffic mitigation, reductions in CO2 output, and additional operational service offerings to benefit shippers, trucking companies, and steamship lines. CIS is situated within a market that includes the Southwest quadrant of Georgia, the southern half of Alabama, and the Florida Panhandle. The Cordele Intermodal facility sits on 40 acres in the Crisp County Industrial Park, with an option to expand on 1,200 adjacent acres. It is less than one mile from Interstate 75, Georgia Highway 300, and Georgia Highway 280. CIS is served by the Heart of Georgia RR and Georgia Central RR, with access to both Class I RR’s in the region (CSX & NS).
Cordele is located in a regional center for agriculture – including the production and export of cotton, peanuts, wood products, and other commodities. Cordele Intermodal Services makes those commodities more competitive in the global market, while reducing carbon emissions. Having an inland depot reduces the shipper’s exposure to truck capacity and shortages.
Because of the Heart of Georgia and CSX interchange in Cordele, CIS is able to source empty containers by rail from Savannah, Atlanta, Memphis, and other container depots in the Southeast. Cordele Intermodal Services is one of the quickest and least expensive empty repositioning points in the Southeast, providing CIS customers with a steady supply of empty containers for export.
