OmniTRAX Affiliate Partners with Topflight Grain Coop to Operate Decatur Central Railroad

A managed affiliate of OmniTRAX, Inc,. one of the largest privately held transportation service companies in North America and an affiliate of the Broe Group and Topflight Grain Cooperative, Inc. are entering into a joint venture to operate, drive business to and rehabilitate the line currently owned by Topflight Grain. OmniTRAX will manage the newly renamed Decatur Central Railroad, LLC, which links Cisco and Decatur, commencing in late 2016. “Were here to celebrate the launch of the Decatur Central Railroad, which will be the new name of the operation and our joint partnership with Topflight and we will be handling their goods and other commodities on the line and the goal is to bring other industrial users to the railroad to create economic development and growth for the area. We are also here to promote that partnership with ADM and Midwest Inland Port,” said Kevin Shuba, CEO of OmniTRAX. The Decatur Central Railroad will transport grain from Topflight Coop members to the plants of ADM, Tate & Lyle and other processing companies in and around Macon County. “OmniTRAX had a great track record of developing businesses that grow regional economies and create new jobs and Topflight is a key agriculture player in Central Illinois. We look forward to working with them to help the Midwest Inland Port reach it fullest potential,” said EDC President Ryan McCrady. The line, which interchanges with CN just north of Decatur, is integral to the growth plans of the Midwest Inland Port.
