Ouray goes with Freedom

Ouray Environmental has partnered with Freedom Intermodal Tank Services to expand the latter’s transloading capabilities at its New Orleans facility to include regulated and hazardous materials. The partnership will allow Freedom to offer a wide range of liquids and gas transfer operations, including drums, IBCs, tank containers, road tankers, rail tank cars and barges. 

Freedom’s site offers multi-line rail access, direct water access to the Mississippi River and Gulf of Mexico, and more than 60 rail tank car loading locations. “Our partnership with Ouray will provide real solutions to the ongoing driver shortage our industry is facing,” says Jeff Louis, president/CEO of Freedom’s owner, TCI Tank Logistics. “Bringing our clients’ cargo closer to the end user will maximise driver productivity and allow for more efficient movement of goods. Expanding on our service offering to include regulated/hazardous materials will provide more value-add opportunities for the bulk liquid industry. Our clients are searching for answers, and we believe the multimodal access that is available at Freedom is the answer.”

J Aaron Montgomery, president/CEO of Ouray, adds: “These new services will assist our chemical shipping customers with their domestic logistical challenges and open new export and import markets for their commodities. We are very excited about this new partnership with Freedom and how it advances Ouray’s goal to provide our clients with comprehensive solutions to their most difficult problems.”
