The Transportation Distribution Logistics Council (TDL Council) hosted a tour of the Intermodal Facility at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport on June 24. The group boarded a charter bus in Baxter Town Center in Fort Mill and,while en route to Charlotte, heard from Jason Flora with York County Economic Development. Flora provided an overview of York County’s infrastructure improvements and economic growth in recent years with a focus on new site developments and employers in the county.
With planes landing just a stone’s throw from the heart of the intermodal facility, Tom Jacoby of Norfolk Southern led the bus tour showing attendees how freight enters and exits the site,including a demonstration of how containers are placed on rail.
Following the tour, the group returned to Fort Mill for a networking reception. The TDL Council hosts quarterly events throughout the year. Stay tuned to the Council’s website and social media for details on upcoming events.
