More About Dallas Intermodal Terminal
The 360-acre Dallas Intermodal Terminal (DIT) is located just 12 miles from downtown Dallas, within the city limits of Hutchins and Wilmer, Texas. Designed to support the growing intermodal volume in the region, this central location provides quick access to the counties that comprise 97 percent of the Dallas metroplex population, and is in direct proximity to the five fastest growing counties.
Trucks can gain access to the railport via a high-tech, biometric secured AGS (automated gate system) entrance.
