UNION PACIFIC SOUTHERN DALLAS INTERMODAL FACILITY
The 360-acre Dallas Intermodal Terminal (DIT) is located just 12 miles from downtown Dallas, within the city limits of Hutchins and Wilmer, Texas. Designed to support the growing intermodal volume in the region, this central location provides quick access to the counties that comprise 97 percent of the Dallas metroplex population, and serves as the “gateway” for International goods to the major population centers in the Central and Eastern United States.
Trucks can gain access to The Hub via a high-tech, biometric secured AGS (automated gate system) entrance. This technology allows a trucker to process a container through the gate in 30-90 seconds, as compared to a national average of four minutes. Built with quality in mind, this clean, safe and well-lit intermodal facility will provide nearby highway and interstate access to maximize trucker convenience.
The Dallas Logistics Hub is located adjacent to Interstate 45 at Fulghum Road – approximately six miles south of the Union Pacific Miller Intermodal facility and approximately 3 miles south of Interstate 20.
