Maine's first intermodal facility opened in Auburn two years ago, and other faci
Maine's first intermodal facility opened in Auburn two years ago, and other facilities have since opened in Waterville and Bangor. The facilities, which allow over-the-road trailers to be placed on flatbed rail cars for more efficient transport, save millions of dollars in fuel and road maintenance costs, and will make Maine paper mills competitive with other mills closer to major markets. Some observers are wondering whether the terminals in Waterville and Bangor can both survive. Rob Elder of the Maine Department of Transportation said the state has a three-rail carrier strategy, and believes the three existing facilities will all survive. Details.
