Products handled at Dock 5 range from bentonite clay, chrome ore, sinter feed, blast furnace trim, mill scale, and iron concentrate. The keys to the success of this operation are the Hallett-owned rail yard (which allows us to do our own switching) and a state-of-the-art rail car unloading system and material handling equipment which efficiently transfers the products from rail car to dock face.
