Capital Development Partners has started the first phase of the Cedar Port Logistics Center construction project, an 800,405 square foot dual rail service with immediate access to the Port of Houston.
According to a statement, Phase I is 100% occupied by Plastic Express Inc, a national plastic packaging, warehousing and logistics company. Together with Capital Development Partners, it built a similar facility near the Port of Savannah in Q1 2020.
Phase I offers unique optionality for dual rail service via the TGS short line to BNSF Railroad (BNSF) and Union Pacific Railroad (UP) to serve the growing needs of import and export customers at the Port of Houston.
Cedar Port Logistics Center is a strategically located A+ location just 12 miles from the Port of Houston in the Cedar Port Industrial Park. The project is served by the expanded Grand Parkway (Highway 99), a major heavy haul freeway directly linked to the Port of Houston.
Cedar Port Logistics Center is supported by the 7,800-rail car Cedar Port Z Yard which provides rail car storage and switching to both UP and BNSF rail roads for maximum optionality.
Massive demand for modern facilities in land constrained markets near major US ports is fueled by the widening of the Panama Canal, the strategic position of the Port of Houston, the emergence of E commerce and the continued growth of the Gulf Coast region.
John Knox Porter, CEO of Capital Development Partners, said, “Cedar Port Logistics Center Phase I will allow our customers immediate access to the Port of Houston and two Tier 1 railroads on one site.
“The strategic location, rail service efficiencies and the supporting infrastructure provides our customer with a significant competitive advantage.”
