Since 1979, the Massachusetts Central Railroad has provided rail freight serivce to New England. Serving both on-line customers with rail direct delivery, as well as off-line customers through distribution and reload operations, MassCentral provides cost effective transportation for a wide variety of commodities.

Our location in central Massachusetts is on major highway routes providing access to Boston, Hartford, Providence, Springfield and all of New England in just hours.

Your company does not need to be located adjacent to our railroad for you to optimize your freight logistics. Our on-line distribution and transload facilities can extend the reach of the railroad though transloading almost any product between railcars and trucks. This allows you to combine the benefits of low cost rail with the flexibility of the highway.

MassCentral interchanges with both CSX Transportation and the New England Central Railroad, providing competitive access to the entire North American rail network.
