The new OHC Intermodal facility maximizes the benefits of the new container port in Mobile, Ala.


The intermodal facilitiy is only minutes away from the port by surface streets.

For instance, 23 containers on board the first ship to dock since the official opening of Mobile Container Terminal, after more than 10,000 miles on the ocean, traveled less than 2.5 miles by surface roads to be unloaded at the new OHC Intermodal facility.

The new port is within one day trucking of the Southeast, Southwest and Midwest United States. It is less than 30 miles from the Gulf of Mexico, within 20 miles of the United States Intercoastal Waterway, and close to north/south rail lines and north/south interstate highways.

The new OHC Intermodal facility nearby provides unloading and loading services, storage, and transhipment by road, rail and water. The new facility is equipped with a combilift and other equipment to handle cargo of various sizes and shapes, including non-standard cargo. It is less than 1 mile from the east/west interstate which connects within 5 miles to the north/south interstate and has access to a spur to both north/south and east/west rail lines.
