Lincoln to Offer Rail Service in Atlanta

Lincoln Terminal Co., a Southeast oil products and biofuels marketing and logistics company, announced that it has acquired 45 acres in the Chattahoochee terminal community in west Atlanta to construct a 90-car unit- train delivery facility with 24-hour unload capability.

The facility, which will be the third terminal for Lincoln, will provide access for biofuels and light products delivered via Norfolk Southern rail to the growing Atlanta market.

This facility offers a much needed Atlanta solution for delivery of products and biofuels with efficient value-added qualities not seen in other markets. Added efficiencies include pipeline connections for biofuels and product deliveries to neighboring terminal facilities to further stretch favorable economics in benefit to the market,” said Larry Burgamy, president of Lincoln.

The Atlanta facility will offer rail services for light oil products, butane, biodiesel and ethanol.

The project, located on the Norfolk Southern, is expected to begin construction promptly.

Norfolk Southern is looking forward to serving Lincoln Energy Solutions at their new terminal. This highly efficient facility will be a great complement to other NS served biofuels distribution facilities in the Atlanta market,” said Jason Reiner, assistant vice president, industrial development.

Norfolk Southern Corp.’s “Norfolk Southern Railway subsidiary operates approximately 20,000 route miles in 22 states and the District of Columbia, serves every major container port in the eastern United States, and provides efficient connections to other rail carriers.”

Ethanol will be delivered via rail from the Midwest to Atlanta, and light products can be delivered by pipeline or rail from and to the Gulf Coast and Chicago.

Lincoln markets as well as trades biofuels across the Southeast through the company and third-party facilities. Lincoln’s products marketing is primarily through niche facilities. The company is active in the Southeast from Maryland to Georgia and Tennessee with expansion north into Ohio and Kentucky in 2016. All companies combined, the 2016 projected sales are expected to exceed $1 billion in revenue.
