RCR Taylor Logistics Park Officially Opens Serving Austin MSA and Central Texas

RCR Taylor Logistics Park opened January 15, 2021 with dual Class 1 rail service from Union Pacific and BNSF Railroads. The 755-acre site located in the city of Taylor, Texas and Williamson, County, Texas offers transloading, manifest, unit train and storage for national and international firms in the Austin/Central Texas area. The park is capable of handling multiple, non-hazardous commodities and looks forward to working with customers to meet their individual needs. Serving as a logistics hub for the Central Texas area, RCR Taylor Logistics Park will assist companies in increasing productivity and accessibility through offering dual Class 1 railroad service. Geographic location is extremely important, and Taylor, Texas compliments both Union Pacific & BNSF networks which serve the western and central United States. The rail park is strategically adjacent to major highways, toll roads, industry and rail corridors. Due to the lack of public Class 1 rail served industrial parks in the Austin area the rail park will change logistics for Austin and Central Texas. More than 5 million people live within 100 miles of the park and RCR Taylor Logistics Park will spur business and economic development, divert hundreds of truck routes and provide much-needed employment in this fast-growing region. RCR Taylor Logistics Park will give shippers a more direct and efficient route into the Austin/Central Texas markets as it is located in the Texas “Golden Triangle.” Williamson County and Central Texas are experiencing a tremendous amount of growth in the industrial development sector as the market continues to grow, and the Toll Road 130/Interstate 35 corridor is positioned for long term growth. Highway traffic is currently a hot topic and there are no signs of it declining. Any company shipping via rail is helping to reduce highway congestion, for on the average one rail car can hold four semi-trailer trucks of product. With the growth of Austin, the demand for rail freight tonnage will increase and RCR Taylor Logistics Park is prepared to expand and grow as needed.
