Rail and Short Line Service
Our paper and packaging warehouses are rail-served by either CSX or our local short line provider IORY giving us great transloading options. Each warehouse features high ceilings for maximum storage capacity for products that stack. These warehouses are considered food-grade facilities. They maintain high sanitation standards and in-depth pest control programs to comply with FDA, ASI, and US Military requirements. Our quality team has implemented a detailed HAACP program to manage potential hazards and control points for food grade materials.
We even provide 24/7/365 emergency coverage to time-critical clients. Commonwealth understands how costly a production line shutdown would be for your business. We guarantee availability and delivery capability after hours, on weekends, and even holidays for a simple flat fee. You can rely on us to have you covered in the event of an emergency.
