Keep your eyes on the prize or, in this case, on the freight cars. Which is exactly what Bob Landucci is doing, landing a 10-year contract with Lafarge for his inland port to hand red shale for its cement.
And he is primed for many more industrial bulk customers. Landucci, who owns the property, has been spearheading to bring freight containers to the village via Ashcroft terminals.
Since 1999, he's worked diligently with rail companies and freight leaders across the globe to make the dream happen. Landucci's already made a significant start, but that's just one part of the plan.
