Iowa Interstate Railroad, LTD is a privately held Delaware Corporation and subsidiary of Railroad Development Corporation. It is also one of the few Regional Railroads that connects with the entire Class 1 railroad system (BNSF, UP, CN, CP, KCS, CSXT, and NS) at multiple locations. Our service runs from Council Bluffs, Iowa to Chicago with a branch line to Peoria, Illinois. We also provide daily service to Cedar Rapids, Iowa over the CIC railway. As a result, IAIS customers have the capability to ship and receive their goods to or from anywhere in North America. We also provide Intermodal facilities at Blue Island, Illinois and Council Bluffs, Iowa. Our service pattern is 7 days per week between the Omaha area and Chicago. We also offer access to the Mississippi and Illinois River terminals for rail to barge or barge to rail service. Trans-load facilities are also located in Council Bluffs and Newton Iowa.
Our locomotive fleet, track, and facilities are maintained to high standards and continually upgraded to provide safe reliable service to our customers and employees. We handle a wide range of commodities that include agricultural products, plastics, paper, steel, scrap, lumber and coal. We currently have access to over 1 billion gallons of ethanol and as such, we are one of the top carriers in the ethanol/feed market, sending many unit trains of product to markets throughout the U.S. each week. We are a member of the Association of American Railroads (AAR) and American Short-line and Regional Rail Association (ASLRRA).
