ICE is providing rail transportation services across North America; including international rail shipments into Canada and Mexico. Rail transportation provides a safe, cost-effective and efficient method for delivering a wide range of materials and goods. Our fleet of railcars (gondolas, tankcars, flatcars, hopper cars, etc…), intermodal containers and other equipment gives us the ability to transport materials and goods to virtually anywhere in North America, therefore helping to reduce the carbon footprint, fossil fuel use, and traffic congestion.
Our senior staff members were instrumental in developing several packaging and transportation concepts and methods, including Waste-By-Rail transportation in North America. ICE handles a wide range of materials and goods by rail; these include; bio-fuel & other petrochemical products, hazardous materials, waste (low level radioactive, RCRA hazardous waste, TSCA / PCB waste and non-hazardous waste), sand & aggregate, paper, pulp & wood, steel & metal products and heavy & over-dimensional machinery and equipment.
ICE maintains working relationships and contractual relationships with various short-line, regional railroads and North American Class 1 Railroads; including the CSX Transportation (CSX), Norfolk Southern Corporation (NS), Burlington Northern Sante Fe (BNSF) and Union Pacific (UP) railroads. ICE takes great pride in the fact since our inception, we’ve never had a railcar delayed or held for non payment, nor have we ever had a rail transportation incident. Since 2007, we have handled nearly 10,000 rail shipments.
ICE is providing truck transportation services across North America; including international truck shipments into Canada and Mexico. Utilizing truck transportation gives ICE the ability to transport material that may be time sensitive, in quantities that don’t warrant rail transportation or when economically rail transportation doesn’t work because of shorter distances. Many times if a origin / customer site or the destination / receiving site isn’t directly rail served we’ll utilize trucking to support the move in a truck-to-rail and / or rail-to-truck transload or transfer operation.
ICE maintains a large network of trucking assets across North America. ICE provides; Flatbeds (45’, 48’ and 53’) trailers, Drop Deck Trailers, Low-Boy Trailers, Vans, Tankers Trailers and Trucks and Dump Trucks and Dump Trailers.
ICE handles a wide range of materials and goods by truck; these include; bio-fuel & other petrochemical products, hazardous materials, waste (low level radioactive, RCRA hazardous waste, TSCA / PCB waste and non-hazardous waste), sand & aggregate, paper, pulp & wood, steel & metal products and heavy & over-dimensional machinery and equipment.
ICE is providing marine (river and ocean) transportation services across North America; including international rail shipments coming to and from the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Caribbean Islands. In 2009, despite logistical and mechanical challenges stemming from re-establishing a long-dormant waterway that involved the opening of seven different bridges, ICE endured, and with a coordinated effort with our partners and various government agencies was able to ensure the safe and secure passage of 15,000 barrels of bio-diesel via barge down the Passaic River in Newark, NJ to New York Harbor, where the bio-diesel was then transferred to an ocean going vessel and transport to Europe. ICE has provided cargo container / intermodal shipments for a wide range of materials including plastic, hazardous waste, non-hazardous waste, bio-diesel, rope, steel and other materials.

TRANSLOADING & TRANSFERRING SERVICES
Many times the most economical transportation option is via rail or marine, but the origin and / or destination site may not be served by a railroad. During these cases, ICE has the ability to transload and / or transfer material between the different transportation conveyances. Depending on the scope and length of the project, ICE can set up a temporary transloading / transferring site or if the project is larger in scope or long term, ICE can set up a long term or permanent location. ICE and our senior staff members have been successful in establishing short-term and long-term transload / transfer operations for a wide range of materials, including; liquid hazardous materials, liquids, steel, sand and waste. ICE is also contracted to support design & consulting projects involving the design, construction and operation of transloading & transferring projects.
