In order to continue to meet the demands of our customers and demonstrate our commitment to continuous improvement, we recently made numerous updates to our Kansas City, Mo. terminal.
The front entrance, yard, dock and office spaces were all updated and improved in April 2016:
Doors – To account for a projected increase in freight flow, 50 doors were added to the dock — doubling the size of the terminal.
Lot – The entire lot was expanded and repaved to ensure safe, long-lasting, low maintenance parking solutions and uninterrupted traffic flow.
Office Space – Our office and break room spaces now meet American with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards, including countertop heights appropriate for wheelchair access, ADA-compliant stall and other restroom updates and the addition of a concrete ramp with access to the ADA parking spaces.
Lighting – New energy-efficient LED lighting was installed across the yard and terminal to reduce monthly power consumption and energy costs.
Fuel Island – The fueling station was relocated, and a new fuel island was installed to allow for better traffic flow throughout the lot.
HVAC Unit – The 30-year old HVAC system was replaced with a new, modern one, which will save a significant amount of power over the life of the building.
Our commitment to our customers and employees remains our highest priority. Subscribe to our blog and check back for more update announcements to see what improvements we’re working on at other terminals.
