US-based intermodal transport service provider CG Railway has placed an order at CSSC-affiliated Huangpu Wenchong Shipbuilding for the construction of a rail car carrier.
It is the first order Huangpu Wenchong has received for such a ship type. The ship will be used for rail car transport between ports in the US and Mexico.
CG Railway is a joint venture between Seacor Holdings and railway operator Genesee & Wyoming, and mainly provides rail-ferry transport services between the US, Canada, and Southern Mexico.
The company currently operates two rail car carriers, Bail Sea and Banda Sea, both over 30 years old.
