Rail Transload / Container Stripping / Storage Services
Our logistics operations were born out of our desire to maximize efficiency for the receipt and distribution of our own products in the New York Metropolitan area. As our space and capacity has increased, we began to offer our services to other building products distributors. Cargo arrives by rail or container, without the costly delays of traffic or tolls, and is held by us for release as required by the owner. D & M has been publicly recognized for its efforts to reduce traffic congestion in Metropolitan New York and for helping to reduce carbon emissions by rerouting truck cargo to rail and barge. In cooperation with the New York Atlantic Railroad / MTA and with Red Hook Terminal Operators / The Port Authority, and the City of New York, D & M transload operations remove thousands of trucks per year from our bridges and roadways and keep the Earth cleaner for our children.
D & M operates a five acre rail reload operation in Maspeth, Queens under license from the New York and Atlantic Railroad. Services offered include stripping of flatcars and boxcars, outdoor and covered storage, and reload onto customer or end-user truck. Products handled include lumber, wood panels (plywood, OSB etc.) and gypsum board.
D & M operates a 90,000 sq ft terminal on the water in Red Hook, Brooklyn where ocean containers can be barged-in, stripped, and stored under cover for customer release. The Red Hook terminal also has the capability of directly offloading breakbulk shipments and providing storage and distribution services.
