TRANSFLO Tampa Terminal Reaches Record 1-Billion Mark
TRANSFLO’s Terminal at Hooker’s Point in Tampa, Fla., stands out as a unique location in TRANSFLO’s transloading network. The terminal specializes in moving ethanol from rail cars to storage tanks via a pipeline, versus the more common rail car to truck operation.
In January 2017, the terminal marked a significant volume milestone –one billion gallons of ethanol were transloaded, which equals about 35,000 carloads of ethanol.
“TRANSFLO, in an arrangement with Kinder Morgan and Tampa Port Authority, opened this terminal in 2012 to better serve fuel terminals in Central Florida,” said Susan Pokorny, Director-TRANSFLO Marketing. “It has been a successful partnership and has opened the doors to continuing growth.”
TRANSFLO employees are experts at handling the equipment involved in efficient operations. “Our team at the terminal is highly qualified in both safety and operations, as evidenced by their reaching this one-billion-gallon milestone with no releases, no contaminations and no customer complaints,” said Chris Chewning, Regional Operations Manager-TRANSFLO.
