Tomorrow work will begin to upgrade the Automated Gate System at the Austell Intermodal Facility. As part of this effort, technology upgrades will be implemented in both the ingate and outgate imaging portals. While work is underway, the imaging portals will be closed to vehicle traffic and drivers will be required to take detoured routes when entering and departing the facility.
The ingate portal upgrade is scheduled to take place from Thursday, October 10th to Monday, October 14th and the outgate portal upgrade will take place from Tuesday, October 15th to Saturday, October 19th. While the upgrades are underway, we ask that drivers use extra caution, observe all construction-related signs, and adhere to instructions from construction and ramp personnel. Please plan accordingly.
To help minimize queue time delays, drivers are encouraged to download and utilize the ExpressNSTM mobile application which streamlines gate and terminal processes for our drayage community. With ExpressNSTM, drivers can verify billing, submit pre-gate information, obtain parking and pickup locations, receive electronic interchange receipts, and submit bad order information.
