Since 1957, Peoria Barge Terminal has been one of the premier multi-modal river terminals in Central Illinois. The services we provide are primarily related to freight transfer and storage. Our facilities are located next to the Illinois River and are within close, easy access to the interstate highway system as well as railway systems.
As a multi-modal terminal, we can handle loading or offloading of cargo from barges, trucks and rail cars. Our 1,200-foot unloading dock gives us the ability to handle up to 4 barges at a time, and our on-site rail spur can accommodate up to 24 standard-size rail cars. Heavy equipment at the terminal includes cranes, material handlers, wheel loaders, skid steers and a variety of forklifts.
Our customer base extends from local businesses and industries to international conglomerates. At Peoria Barge Terminal, we genuinely value our customer relationships. Our commitment is to provide every customer with quality service – effective, reliable, and cost-efficient.
