Oakley's St. Louis facility is located as far north as possible without being subject to winter freezing, but just far enough south to avoid increased transportation rates associated with the lock and dam system near St. Louis. The location also offers excellent proximity to five interstates and all class one railroads. Together, these factors offer the greatest flexibility and ensure economic transport whether it’s via river, rail or road.
With 105,000 tons of dry storage and 30,000 tons of liquid storage capacity, the St. Louis warehousing facility offers a large supply of product. Other features that define our facility include: loading capabilities of 360 tons per hour delivering a daily capacity of 8,600 tons, a rail yard with 23,000 feet of track, and three locomotives and a truck and rail scale on site. It all adds up to a well-oiled machine that loads at least one train of 65 railcars every 24 hours. That means greater efficiency and cost savings for the customers we serve.
