The DeLong Co. and CenterPoint have a long standing relationship. CenterPoint developed two facilities for the company previously in Northlake and Joliet, Illinois, which have utilized CIC- Joliet and Elwood for exports. Based on their experience as a CenterPoint tenant, The DeLong Co. recognizes the value that intermodal proximity and logistics-advantaged facilities generate for the company.

The DeLong Co. plans to relocate its 15-acre transload operation from Channahon, Illinois, to the proposed 25-acre site, which is centrally located in between the Union Pacific and BNSF intermodal yards. The facility will enhance the agricultural transload platform at CIC-Joliet, which is the largest agricultural export hub in the Midwest. Currently, there are more than 105 million bushels of locally produced agricultural products exported annually from the park.
