The Smart Choice for the Energy Sector
Southton Rail Yard, a pristine industrial location providing a new convenient gateway to the Eagleford Shale
While most existing energy related transload locations are conversions of older facilities, Southton Rail Yard is a brand new facility with investments totaling over $54 Million. Southton Rail Yard has been conceived and constructed as a state of the art facility specifically designed to service the energy sector.
With 300 acres, the ability to be serviced by both the Union Pacific and BNSF railroads and over 5 miles of track, Southton Rail Yard is the premier choice for transloading energy related products for the Eagleford Shale.

Our facility has capacity for over 160 direct rail to truck car locations for quick, easy and efficient transloading.
Southton Rail Yard is operated by Arrow Material Services, which has managed material transportation logistics since 1954 and currently operates over 30 rail transloading locations in the domestic United States. Their deep operating experience combined with Southton’s premier location make Southton Rail Yard an easy choice for your future transloading needs.
