CEDAR CITY, Utah (October 5, 2022) – Savage, a global provider of industrial logistics infrastructure and supply chain services, is pleased to announce plans to construct, own and operate a multi-commodity railport in Iron County, Utah, northwest of Cedar City. The Savage Railport – Southern Utah will provide transloading services to connect critical supply chains for agriculture products, construction materials and other essential commodities. The railport is expected to be operational within 12-15 months and will provide shippers with direct access to Union Pacific rail lines. Savage is currently working with Iron County to obtain all necessary permits.

“We’re excited to expand our Savage Transload Network into Southern Utah, adding to the more than 50 transload terminals we operate across North America,” said Jason Ray, Executive Vice President and Chief Development Officer at Savage. “The Savage Railport – Southern Utah will support moving building and construction products, dry-bulk and liquid-bulk materials between trucks and railcars. This transportation infrastructure investment will drive economic growth and support jobs by helping connect farmers and businesses in Cedar City, St. George and rural communities throughout Southern Utah with broader domestic and global markets.”
