Cargo Container Firm Moves from Love Field to Dallas Logistics Hub

Developer Allen Group – which is building the 6,000-acre Dallas Logistics Hub in southern Dallas County – said Tuesday that it has signed a new deal with a cargo container firm.

Bridge Terminal Transport, a marine container hauler with locations across the U.S., will relocate its existing container yard from Love Field in Dallas to the project.

The new location is near Union Pacific Railway’s Dallas Intermodal Terminal in Interstate 45 in Hutchins.

“We are pleased to work with Bridge Terminal Transport to provide them with a perfect location for its Dallas container yard facility,” Daniel J. McAuliffe, president of The Allen Group’s Texas operations, said in a statement.

“This will be the first storage facility within the Dallas Logistics Hub that will allow accessible integration between the Dallas Intermodal Terminal and distribution customers in and around the logistics park.”

Allen Group said construction has begun on the facility which will open in February.

Bob Hagewood of Stream Realty Partners LP brokered the real estate transaction.

The Allen Group is based in San Diego and is developing about 8,000 acres in the U.S.
