Grenada Railway Intermodal Alternatives Assessment

This study focused on identifying and evaluating Mississippi manufacturing companies to determine potential for establishing business partnerships with the Grenada Railway. Grenada Railway transportation services evaluated during this study included direct-to-rail connections, storage-on-rail opportunities, and intermodal transport prospects. These companies were identified using Mississippi World Trade Center data and assigned numerical values based on a scoring matrix established by the Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems Extension personnel conducting the study. Criteria and weight of each criterion were evaluated and presented to Iowa Pacific representatives for approval. Once approved, Mississippi manufacturers were scored and the companies identified with the best potential for establishing symbiotic relationships with Grenada Railway were reported in this study.
