Range of Services and Facilities
Located in Granite City, IL, America’s Central Port (ACP) and its tenants offer a wide range of services and facilities, including:
- Barge, rail and truck commodity transfer
- Industrial, commercial and residential development sites
- Warehouse and commercial lease opportunities
The ACP Port Harbor Railroad (PHRR), a Class III short line railroad, provides 24-hour local switching and connections to all six North American Class I carriers and the regional switching carrier Terminal Railroad Association of St. Louis (TRRA). ACP is also home to one of the region’s multiple intermodal sites. Several locomotives are stationed on-site to accommodate a growing number of tenants that require on-demand rail services.
ACP has container on barge capabilities and participated in the 2015 Paducah-McCracken County River port Authority and Ingram Barge Company container-on-barge trial run program. ACP warehouses are located in a secured industrial park setting within Foreign Trade Zone #31.
ACP’s river harbor services include:
A major component of the port’s existing harbor is the movement of liquid bulk products, primarily asphalt oil. Product is transferred from river barge into heated tanker cars or into storage tanks located on the property. The liquid terminal can handle a variety of liquids including food-grade oils.
ACP’s Roll-On/Off Dock can be used to transfer oversized and overweight items to and from the river from rail or road.
In October, 2015, ACP opened its $50 million Madison Harbor – built to increase handling capabilities of port operators to better accommodate the demands and needs of Midwest growers and shippers. The new harbor provides additional opportunities for multi-modal logistics and for the container on barge industry.
