Rail Transportation

Shipping over the rail is one of the most efficient transportation options available. Not only is cost generally cheaper but it is a green and safe way to ship as well. Many of the class one rail lines throughout Minnesota and Missouri pull right up to our doors, and in some cases right into our buildings via our indoor rail tracks. By handling nearly 10,000 rail cars per year we are one of the largest rail transloading providers in the Midwest.  

Drayage Services

When containers are shipped via rail, they must be brought from the rail ramp to the warehouse. We utilize carrier partnerships to transport 20’, 40’ and 53’ containers off of the rail to our dock doors. Our partnerships with quality drayage companies ensure that your product will be moved efficiently and safely to our warehouses in the Twin Cities and Kansas City.

Heavy Haul

Murphy Rigging provides transportation for any size product that the road can handle. The use of Tri-Axle, Tilt-bed, and Multi-level trailers make moving large items possible.
