FORT WORTH, TX–(EMWNews – August 19, 2008) – BNSF Railway Company today announced the

reopening of a rail-served building materials transload facility under the

management of Partners Warehouse, LLC, at Eola, Ill. Operating as Partners

Dimensional Services, the facility has received a complete track and

maintenance overhaul to better handle dimensional (oversized) materials

such as lumber, steel, and other building products. Security has been

upgraded and lighting added for continuous operations 24 hours a day, 7

days a week.

“This is the only yard of its type close to the growing housing market in

the western Chicago suburbs and with immediate access to major North/South

and East/West highways,” said Vann Cunningham, BNSF assistant vice

president, economic development. “Partners Warehouse’s knowledge of the

local market, combined with their experience working with lumber and other

building products, makes them the perfect choice to run the Eola facility.”

In addition to its proximity to Chicago and major highways, the facility

contains more than 12.5 acres of covered and open storage, trucking

services via Partners Transportation Services, and the capacity to handle

dimensional loads.
