Boston Sand At Work

In addition to shipping sand and aggregate by truck from our NH aggregate plants, our short line railroad, New Hampshire Northcoast connects with Pan Am Railways allowing efficient and dependable sand and gravel transport from our Ossipee, NH facility to our metro Boston location. Our railroad also provides freight service to customers, hauling bulk goods such as steel and liquefied propane tanks. New Hampshire Northcoast rail service also proceeds uninterrupted through the very challenging winter months.

The Company’s aggregate terminal in Everett allows storage and distribution of bulk materials close to Boston. A 12 acre site located along the Boston Harbor, the Everett Terminal is accessible by water, rail and truck. The facility operates an active marine dock with barge capability and a rail spur with connection to the CSX line. The terminal is also accessible by truck and close to the main north-south highways, I-93 and Route 1.
