Great Bend, Garden City Chosen for Transload Sites

HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) _ The state transportation department has chosen Garden City and Great Bend as sites for centers that will move goods from one type of transportation to another. The two cities were chosen from a group of seven that made formal presentations to a transportation department selection committee. The Hutchinson News reports that the centers, called transload sites, will move goods between trucks and railcars. The centers are expected to provide more flexible and cost-effective shipping for businesses that do not have access to freight rail service or need more warehouse space. Department officials say the next step is working with the cities to develop plans for the centers.
