The new Milan Inland Port provides complete intermodal and logistics solutions at a strategically-located, 22,000-acre, Mid South location. The facility is a registered Foreign Trade Zone, and is perfectly situated to handle international and domestic traffic travelling in both containers and railcars. Customers using the new inland port benefit from a direct CSX connection between Memphis and Milan.

The Milan Inland Port is part of the Milan Commercial Complex, a facility featuring 86 miles of track served by the Wolf Creek Railroad, part of the Rail Enterprise Group of railways. The center’s infrastructure can handle a full range of bulk transload, cross dock, warehouse, and distribution options. The rail infrastructure can accommodate all types of non-hazardous carload freight, unit trains, and also features a site that is ideal for the development of an intermodal terminal.

The Milan Inland Port’s strategic location brings customers to within one day’s trucking time (or less) of more than seven manufacturing centers, nine major auto plants, multiple auto parts suppliers, and the Memphis trade hub. The operation connects to multiple rail corridors stretching between the Mid South and ports in Mexico, Canada, and the United States.

We are ready to help our partner railroads and their customers move the tens of billions of dollars worth of goods shipped to and from the Mid South region along these corridors every year. This includes shipments from the Far East and Europe.
