Fort Lauderdale, FL, November 11,2016, 2016 Delta Southern Railroad, operated by Continental Rail, has undergone an extensive overhaul since the 2015 acquisition, and anticipates more positive changes in the 2nd year. Israel Perez, Continental Rail Corporate Controller, believes that Delta Southern Railroad is indeed a “phoenix rising from the ashes.”
In a recent memo to employees, Perez outlines the past year’s accomplishments such as: a $1.3M capital infrastructure investment, the rail road’s complete IT upgrade and the implementation of a formal control structure. The capital infrastructure investment has enabled Delta Southern to open a main line that has not hosted rail traffic in almost 20 years. The company anticipates many new business opportunities beginning in the fall of 2016, when the main line will officially open.
“Delta Southern Railroad is a symbol of what the American Dream is all about. Our employees work every day to create value for our customers and to bring products to the markets we serve. Delta Southern Railroad employees strive for personal and professional excellence and it is an honor to serve along side them,” said Perez.
“Delta Southern Railroad is a place of pride for the employees and communities that it supports. Strong companies demand strong leadership, which is what Delta Southern has with the team in place. I am proud to support the success of Delta Southern Railroad,” continued Perez.
