Mesquite Intermodal Facility

Our Mesquite Intermodal Facility is centrally located between Yuma, Blythe, Imperial Valley and Mexicali.

With over 2 miles of rail we are capable of shipping full unit trains (200-240 containers) straight to the LB/LA harbor’s for export or for the domestic market potentially saving thousands in trucking costs as well as minimizing logistic difficulties. We are capable of handle shipping containers (40ft & 20ft) and also manifest rail cars (hoppers, box cars, flat’s and gondolas) for either load or unload purposes at our site depending on the need. Coupled with Ecology’s existing trucking fleet and our vast background in loading/unloading rail cars we are confident our service will be second to none and more than capable of handling your needs.
