Rail Services

Murphy is one of the largest commercial rail transloading providers in the Upper Midwest. We handle nearly 10,000 rail cars per year, unloading between 300,000-900,000 tons of freight annually. We have nearly 1.5 million square feet of rail accessible storage within the Twin Cities metropolitan area and Kansas City. In fact, all Murphy rail docks and storage facilities are located within a one to five mile radius from every major rail line.

Our direct railroad partners include all national Class I carriers serving the Upper Midwest, including Burlington Northern Santa Fe, Union Pacific, Canadian National and Canadian Pacific. We also have a strong relationship with Progressive Rail regional short line railroad.

Our rail partners have direct access to Murphy’s rail storage facilities through dedicated rail line spurs, keeping costs low. Our experienced staff manages all transloading and distribution so products always stay secure, damage-free, and unweathered in our bonded warehouses.
