THE LANSING GROUP TO BUILD HIGH SPEED SHUTTLE IN SE MISSOURI
Source: The Lansing Group news release

Lansing Trade Group today announced plans to construct a high speed shuttle train facility on the Union Pacific Railroad near Grayridge, Missouri.

Construction is expected to begin this month with plans to receive grain by fall 2014. Once completed, the facility will be capable of loading 110-car shuttle trains. The state of the art design includes high speed truck receiving, a high capacity dryer and the ability to receive multiple commodities. The facility will be Lansing's second shuttle facility in the delta region and add to the existing network of facilities operated by the company.

"We are excited to build our delta presence north toward Southeast Missouri" said CEO Bill Krueger. "This opportunity allows Lansing to bring value to producers in this rich production area of the Missouri Bootheel by providing access to a high speed UP served shuttle loading facility. The operation will expand our origination depth and enhance service opportunities for our destination customers."

Mike Lemke, VP added, "We have had tremendous support from the local community, the State of Missouri, and the Union Pacific to see this project develop. This project may never have gotten off the ground without partners such as Stoddard County IDA, Stoddard County Commission, Gray Ridge Special Road District, Missouri DED, MoDOT, SEMO Electric Cooperative and the Little River Drainage District. Lansing is extremely grateful to all those who helped to get this project to locate in Southeast Missouri and who assisted us in moving the project forward." Lansing and the Missouri DED are continuing to work together to develop state incentives to support the project.
