The facility is centrally located for numerous pipeline connections providing support storage services for a variety of commodities, including petrochemical and other bulk commodities. Contanda’s automated terminal facility will be built in phases to provide customers access to on-site processing, multiple ship and barge docks, and convenient tank truck and rail car accessibility.
