Buoyed by customer demand, trucking and drayage provider moves deeper into Gulf
CLEVELAND, Ohio - ContainerPort Group (CPG®) announced today that they will open a new trucking terminal in New Orleans, Louisiana, their 26th terminal overall and third along the Gulf of Mexico.
“We’re really excited about planting a flag in New Orleans,” says CPG Executive VP of Trucking Joey Palmer. “Our existing terminal in Mobile, Alabama has a few drivers who run to New Orleans, and with the increased demand for drayage services from our customers, we felt this was the time to find a permanent location near the port.”
The facility is located at 10090 Almonaster Ave, a brief drive to both the Port of New Orleans and the Norfolk Southern rail ramp. A secured yard on-site provides peace-of-mind for contractors and their parked vehicles. In addition, CPG is backed by an extensive network of independent contractors and is celebrating 50 years in business in the month of September.
“Extending our national footprint is important when it comes to growing the fleet,” says Jonathan Urban, CPG Senior Vice President of Operations. “Having a presence in the New Orleans market helps us continue to find solutions for our customers at ports across the gulf and the east coast. Customers have already been in contact to see how quickly we can assist them – confirmation that CPG is poised for additional growth.”
