"You can now have a closer connection to your ultimate market," said Governor Brad Little. 

Which is the purpose of Idaho's first Intermodal rail terminal, and to build connection. 

"Our company was founded, as I said, on relationships," said CEO and President of Savage Services Kirk Aubry. "That's the way we're going to continue to operate, and so we look forward to being a member of this community." 

Aubry says this new terminal will provide businesses and farmers with options to thrive. 

Governor Brad Little says it will also benefit the working population and the environment by decreasing a carbon footprint that is made when commodities are shipped on the roads.  

"That saves jobs, that saves money, that saves capacity on our roads so it's really a win, win, win for everybody," said Little. 

Savage Services has been in business for 75 years as a provider of industry infrastructure and supply chain.  

Aubry mentioned this has been the de cade of agriculture in Idaho.  

"We're here for you, and we'll do what we say we're going to do just like the three brothers did 75 years ago," said Aubry. 

Farmers for example, will have the opportunity to ship hay and wheat through the terminal. 

As time carries on, Aubry is optimistic multiple farmers and businesses will have a beneficial use to the new addition at the Pocatello Rail Yard.
