PSC Group recently acquired the Bayport Rail Terminal (BRT), a 115-acre rail, truck, and container terminal near the Port of Houston, from the US Development Group.

BRT, in operation more than 20 years, provides last-mile logistics infrastructure and services within one of the world’s largest chemical and plastic production hubs. Along with offering loaded and empty railcar staging and switching, BRT houses full-service railcar repair and cleaning operations, offering customers a one-stop solution for railcar repairs. BRT’s location also allows it to provide rail-to-container transloading services.

“The wide range of solutions and services provided by the Bayport Rail Terminal expands our existing capabilities, and we are thrilled to welcome it to the PSC family,” said PSC CEO Joel Dickerson said in a news release. “BRT is a one-of-a-kind logistics asset strategically situated close to the Port of Houston and in the heart of the Houston chemical industry.

“Access to these markets will enable PSC to expand our offering of critical last-mile logistics services to the more than 80 rail-served manufacturing and logistic facilities housed along the Bayport Loop and the Port of Houston.”

BRT also boasts “significant undeveloped acreage,” enabling future expansion, PSC said.

The deal marks the sixth acquisition completed by PSC Group since partnering with private-equity firm Aurora Capital Partners in 2019, including Prokar, Fryoux Tankerman Service, Akrotex Extrusion, Thermoplastics Services, and Steel Line Rail Services.

The company also recently opened a recycling facility in Baytown, Texas.
