Transportation by Truck
Mississippi Sand has access to a fleet of more than 80 pneumatic tank trucks. Due to our close proximity to the destination market, we have the ability to provide competitive transportation rates and a timely delivery. This option provides our customers with the opportunity to meet their last minute needs.
Mississippi Sand utilizes the experienced team at Affton Terminal Services for loading railcars. Material is trucked from the production plant in Festus to this location in St. Louis. Located on the TRRA, the Affton Terminal offers rail access to all U.S. Class I Railroads. By working closely with Affton and the railroads themselves, we have the opportunity to ship railcars to any desired destination.
With a diversified logistics network, we move an average of 6,000 tons of material by barge each week via the intracoastal river way. Each barge is inspected and certified for cleanliness, loaded to meet draft restrictions and covered for transport to our destination river terminals. Upon arrival, material is then emptied into silos and made available for distribution.
Mississippi Sand has the ability to provide material wherever it is needed, by whatever mode of transportation desired by the customer. With a focus on convenience, we have established five strategically placed distribution locations. Click on our interactive map to view our locations.
