New Rail Transloading Service and Hub Provides Unique Integrated Offerings for the Streamlined Transportation of Raw Materials and Is Expected to Attract Global Businesses to Cedar City and the Southern Utah Region
KANNARAVILLE, UTAH (JULY 27, 2023) – BZI (bzi.com) and its affiliate company, RailSync™ (railsync.io) announced today that the company’s new transloading service has delivered its first railcars of steel and lumber. Located in Cedar City, the rail transportation service and hub are part of the Utah Inland Port Authority Iron Springs Project Area and planned Commerce Crossroads sustainable industrial park, and will provide unique integrated offerings for the streamlined transportation of raw materials.
RailSync provides expanded short-line rail service to individual facilities and will be part of a planned complex of offerings bringing enhanced technology, construction material manufacturing, data centers, e-commerce, and distribution, as well as office space and residential housing available to its customers.
“Our new vertically integrated transloading service, Rail Sync, is operating and open for business, and is set to bring significant economic and business impact to Southern Utah,’” said Guy Nielsen, COO of RailSync. “RailSync will make it much easier for businesses in the area to access the resources they need. This, in turn, will lead to increased productivity, and efficiency, and ultimately boost the local economy.”
One of RailSync’s first users recognizes the differentiated approach to the company’s innovative transportation offerings. “We are thrilled to have a more accessible, sustainable, and efficient means to transport steel,” said Sam Williams, COO of BZI Steel. “Less trucks and more rail is better for the environment and ensures a more direct and efficient form of delivery, allowing us to enhance our level of service to our customers.”
According to the company, RailSync will also create job opportunities for residents of Iron County and attract additional global businesses to Southern Utah, which will further inject new growth opportunities into the surrounding areas.
RailSync is advantageously located at the “Crossroads of the West”. Its name is derived due to its central location, which is only a day’s drive from such population centers as LA, Denver, Phoenix, and Salt Lake City, allowing access to a potential market of 48 million people.
“The central proximity of the RailSync hub provides a tremendous opportunity for us to attract and serve a multitude of customers across all types of industries from major U.S. markets,” added Nielsen.
