Municipal Solid Waste – Baled Waste Rail Shipments (Confidential Client)

When our client was beginning to shift from the traditional collections – processing – truck to landfill operations to one in which the processing and shipment operations took a different form, they asked Tealinc to become involved as part of the overall team. Nearby landfills were running out of capacity and their disposal fees were reflective of this restriction. A rail shipping solution was a practical, but lengthy process as baled MSW had never been shipped by rail for the carriers involved.

Tealinc’s involvement was to locate rail equipment that would work for the baled MSW loading configuration necessary to optimize tonnage, devise a rail shipping plan, work with the Class I and industrial carriers on rates and service and assist with the rail plan at the landfill destination. The team was lead by Dan Kirkpatrick, VP Operations. Dan has since left this company to pursue his entrepreneurial desires but you may read his reference letter.
