SMS Rail Lines, a railroad freight company based in Bridgeport, N.J., has a busy hub where it loads and unloads railroad cars for shipping product to markets in the New York-Vermont borderlands.
The freight company took over the former G.E. watering site at the Fort Edward Industrial Park in 2017 and converted the site into a grain transfer station for dairy farmers.
Since acquiring the Fort Edward Industrial Park site, SMS Rail has steadily built up the transfer station as a nexus for offloading commodities to market.
