Chicago Public WarehouseNeill Cartage and Warehouse is Chicago's premier full service logistics, warehousing, and distribution company.  Servicing the Midwest since 1946. 

Neill Cartage and Warehouse offers customers the opportunity to reduce costs and increase efficiencies and flexibility within their supply chain through rail served warehouses.  Moving freight long distances via rail can be a very economical and efficient form of transportation, especially for heavier freight. Neill operates rail-served warehouse facilities in Chicago, Illinois with direct rail access from both Union Pacific Rail Road (UP) & Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF).  Freight from inbound railcars can be transloaded into containers for overseas shipping, or into trucks for domestic delivery. If you need to ship your freight via rail, but are not rail served at your own facility, we can consolidate truckload shipments at one of our facilities and then ship outbound via our rail-served warehouse.

Take advantage of the economic savings our network offers.  Incorporating a warehouse into your supply chain can bring many benefits to your business.

  • Reduce your shipping costs: Typically one rail car transports the same volume as 3 to 4 trucks.
  • Reduce your delivery lead times: By forward positioning your inventory, your product is closer to the desired end market.
  • Leverage a warehouse’s operating experience: Select a warehouse that has years of experience in handling your product.
  • Reduce your carbon footprint: By converting from truck to rail you are helping the environment.
