Seaford Industrial Plant Sold to Railroad Company

JANUARY 2018, SEAFORD, DE – SVN-Miller Commercial Real Estate Senior Advisors John McClellan, CCIM, Henry Hanna, CCIM, SIOR, and Tom Knopp collaborated to sell the former BASF Polymer Plant located at 100 Industrial Blvd in Seaford, DE. The 37,000 square foot building along with an adjacent 6.63 acre parcel was an ideal match for Carload Express, due to the frontage on the main North South rail line.

Carload Express is a leading short line railroad and transportation company serving Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio and the surrounding region. Carload Express recently assumed control of the Norfolk Southern rail lines on the majority of the Delmarva Peninsula. They plan to use this property as an intermodal rail/truck facility as well as a storage and distribution center.

“Seaford continues to prove that they are ready to do business, and this deal will benefit their economy by allowing businesses to utilize rail and reduce costs,” stated Senior Advisor John McClellan. “The industry wants rail service and the Eastern Shore is the place to get it,” said Henry Hanna. “This is the third sale on rail in recent months.”
