There’s a reason why we keep saying there is no project we cannot handle. It stems largely from how well our facility interlaces rail, truck and barge transportation. The Missouri River, the Union Pacific railroad, and Interstate 29 form the major arteries that allow us to receive from and ship to nearly anywhere; our customized and established equipment make easy work of the logistics in-between.
While our equipment deserves quite a bit of credit, it’s our team of operators, millwrights, carpenters, and fabricators who rise to the opportunity day after day. You can count on us at Big Soo Terminal to develop efficient solutions to your most difficult storage and transportation problems. It’s our passion. And it’s our privilege.
When you have dry bulk storage needs, Big Soo Terminal offers a wide range of large and small options, complete with access to railcar and truck loading stations. Our extensive rail sidings provide unit train capability, which brings substantial time and cost savings to our customers. Add that to our six-day weekly rail service and you’ll quickly see how we have the capacity and ability to get the job done.

At Big Soo Terminal, we know that while your product may be out of (and off) site, it is not out of mind. That’s why we take such huge measures for safety, product identification, ad-hoc and custom reporting, and product tracking. You will always know where your product is, how it is being handled, and how much of it you have. We are your partner in making sure your product logistics are both organized and coordinated, protecting you from lost inventory, time, and potential.
We embrace state-of-the-art and customized technology in a way few in the terminal and warehouse industry have. It’s one of the reasons we’ve been around for more than 50 years; we learn as much from our customers as they do from us, and we keep moving forward. From designing product-specified storage equipment to developing transport logistics, our team is here to make sure your product is handled safely and efficiently, with the goal of saving you time and money.
While Big Soo may be best known for its storage and transportation advantages, we also take pride in the ability to custom mix and blend products per customer specifications. Being in business over half a century has given us an extensive product vocabulary, whether it is with the products themselves or the storage equipment and fabrication needed to handle and store them properly.
