TNW Corporation (TNW), a Dallas-based owner-operator of short line railroads and logistics centers, today announced the opening of Panhandle Logistics Solutions (PLS), a new bulk transload facility that is located approximately 50 miles north of Amarillo near Sunray, Texas. Panhandle Logistics Solutions is operated by TNW Corporation.

Panhandle Logistics Solutions’ workforce and technology focuses on transferring bulk materials between railcars and trucks.  They provide the experience and expertise needed to develop specialized services that allow customers to diversify their supply chains.
