The acquisition of the strategic Bayport Rail Terminal (BRT) by PSC Group will allow the company to expand its footprint in the midst of the world's largest chemical and plastic production hub. The BRT, in operation for over 20 years and previously owned by US Development Group, is located on the Bayport Loop, and is in close proximity to the Port of Houston. PSC adds the Bayport Rail Terminal to its portfolio after recently announcing the opening of its Advanced Recycling Facility in Baytown, Texas.  

The 115-acre BRT provides rail, truck, and marine last-mile infrastructure logistics, railcar repair, and sustainability services to the petrochemical, refining and marine industries. 

“The wide range of solutions and services provided by the Bayport Rail Terminal expands our existing capabilities, and we are thrilled to welcome it to the PSC family,” said PSC CEO Joel Dickerson. “BRT is a one-of-a-kind logistics asset strategically situated close to the Port of Houston and in the heart of the Houston chemical industry. Access to these markets will enable PSC to expand our offering of critical last-mile logistics services to the more than 80 rail-served manufacturing and logistic facilities housed along the Bayport Loop and the Port of Houston.”

BRT marks the sixth acquisition completed by PSC Group since partnering with Aurora in 2019, including Prokar, Inc., Fryoux Tankerman Service, Akrotex Extrusion, Thermoplastics Services, Inc. and Steel Line Rail Services, LLC. The company says that it handles 700,000 rail and truck loads each year with 4,500 employees nationwide. 

Along with offering loaded and empty railcar staging and switching, BRT houses comprehensive full-service railcar repair and cleaning operations. 

The property contains a significant amount of undeveloped acreage that can allow PSC to expand the rail terminal to serve the needs of surrounding industries.
