DENVER — OmniTRAX, one of the fastest growing railroads in North America and an affiliate of The Broe Group, announces the launch of its new Rail-Ready Sites program. This program, designed to bring together rail-served sites and customers in need of development properties, kicks off with 10 Rail-Ready Sites along the New Jersey division of the Winchester & Western Railroad.

With direct access to both the CSX Transportation and Norfolk Southern Class I railroads, the initial 10 sites were carefully selected with the Cumberland County Improvement Authority, Choose NJ, and municipal development departments, in addition to landowners and developers of the sites. Together, the 10 sites total close to 600 acres and range in size from seven to more than 140 acres. These 10 properties are ideal locations for rail-served manufacturing, food processing, recycling and distribution facilities, and will bring jobs to Cumberland County.

“At OmniTRAX, we focus on growing American Communities. The Rail-Ready Sites program is a way to collaborate with our community partners and bring rail-served properties to market, aiding those communities and embracing rail-related growth. Freight rail is a precious commodity. Together with our community partners, we are committed to bringing Rail-Ready Sites like these to market in order to connect more businesses to the freight rail network, which is proven to create jobs and economic growth,” said Ean Johnson, Vice President of Economic Development at OmniTRAX.

“Cumberland County is unique in offering shippers strategic proximity and connectivity to markets with more than 100 million customers in the New Jersey-Boston-New York City-Philadelphia-Washington DC corridor. We have a business-friendly approach and are ready to talk,” said Gerard Velazquez III, President and CEO, Cumberland County Improvement Authority.
