DENVER, Dec. 29, 2011 -- OmniTRAX, Inc. today announced that BP Products North America has begun shipping liquid asphalt as a customer through a new terminal located on the Chicago Rail Link (CRL).

Asphalt is barged to the new terminal and loaded into railcars by Asphalt Operating Services of Chicago (AOSC), the owner, developer and terminal operator. The railcars are switched and delivered to interchange for distribution throughout North America by the CRL, an OmniTRAX managed company.

Union Tank Car Company (UTLX) provides onsite car repair and inspections. The terminal will benefit from seven-day per week customized service from the CRL, as well as long-term transportation savings available through the CRL's access to most major Class 1 railroads.

In preparation for this new business, the CRL completed an extensive improvement plan, upgrading its main rail yards and crossings.

"There were a number of companies that came together to make this project a success," said Gary Long, president and CEO of OmniTRAX. "We view this as a model for rail-served industrial development projects."

OmniTRAX, based in Denver, Colorado, is one of North America's largest privately-held transportation management companies, managing railroads, intermodal service providers, transload companies, ports, and related entities throughout North America. It manages 17 regional and short-line railroads, serving 11 U.S. states and three Canadian provinces.

OmniTRAX is an affiliate of The Broe Group, based in Denver, Colorado, which has operations in real estate, transportation and energy businesses throughout North America.
