Allen Group to Develop Dallas Container Yard

By Thomas L. Gallagher

The Allen Group will develop a build−to−suit container yard at the Dallas Logistics Hub for Bridge Terminal Transport.

BTT will relocate its container yard operations from an existing facility near Love Field Airport to the 6,000−acre DLH multi−modal logistics park near Union Pacific’s Dallas Intermodal Terminal. The yard will store inbound and outbound containers that transfer through DIT, as well as chassis and trailers.”This will be the first storage facility within the Dallas Logistics Hub that will allow accessible integration between the DIT and distribution customers in and around the logistics park,” said Daniel J. McAuliffe, president of The Allen Group’s Texas operations.

With construction already underway, the yard is expected to be fully operational by Feb. 2009.
