Welcome to TTI, your one stop shipping company. No matter what kind of product or destination, TTI can help you ship it by rail. Our railroad is locally operated and is one of the best shortlines in the country. TTI was established in 1979 when the company founders saw the Paris to Maysville route as the shortest rail distance to the river for coal shippers located in CSXT’s, EK and CV rate origins. When it comes to shipping coal, the TTI Railroad is your one stop transportation service from rail to river. If you’re looking for a simple way to move your coal from the mines of eastern Kentucky to the utilities and industries beyond, we have an economical answer.
TTI markets and coordinates with the TTI Terminal (Transcontinental Terminal, Inc.), which loads barges on the Ohio River (MP 405.9). Just one call will get you personalized service and competitive pricing start to finish.
Rail transportation is perhaps one of the most economical forms of freight transportation available. But many companies haven’t taken advantage of using rail transportation because their facilities aren’t located near a railroad. Now, thanks to our intermodal rail to truck transfer terminal in Paris, Kentucky, businesses in central Kentucky are enjoying enormous savings, shipping by rail. TTI's rail to truck reload base of operations extends to a 50 mile radius of Paris and includes Maysville, Georgetown, Morehead, Frankfort, Mt. Sterling, Lexington, Winchester, Danville and Richmond. We can meet your just in time delivery needs with warehousing, the forward positioning of inventory and car storage. We can accommodate a wide variety of products including steel products, dry bulk, plastics, food products, lumber, chemicals & waste materials. And we have a security system in place to protect your products while they're stored at our terminal.
The cost of transporting your coal and other bulk commodities represents a significant portion of its total delivered price. It makes sense to choose a transportation system that offers you the best value for your money. By offering a little bit more in the way of service than our competitors do, we find we keep our customers happy and coming back for more. Our competitive rates also help us attract and hold new business. The repeat business and referrals by our customers make us feel we’re on the right track.
