Item 13: Massport's Conley Terminal. Example of roll-on/roll-off or Ro/Ro, [ca. 1986 September]Add to your cart.View associated digital content.
On item back: Boston Port/1740. Boston's shipping community helped to keep the local MBTA commuter rail system on schedule on June 9, bringing in the first installment of 67 railcars to be delivered by all-water sea freight service. The four 85-foot railcars, produced by Messerschmitt-Bolkow-Blom of West Germany, were handled via a new service at the Massachusetts Port Authority's (Massport's) Conley Terminal, roll-on/roll-off or Ro/Ro. Ro/Ro service, which was introduced to Boston in September of 1986 through a space charter agreement between Trans Freight Lines (TFL) and Nedlloyd, allows for direct delivery of heavy-lift equiptment and oversized or wheeled cargo, such as railcars or fire engines. Previously, cargo such as this would have had to be delivered to some other East Coast port, disassembled, trucked to Boston, and reassembled, greatly increasing the possibilities of damage and/or lost delivery time. Once offloaded at Conley Terminal, the railcars were transported by Hallamore Motor Transportation, Inc. of Holbrook to Emprotech in Readville, where they will be finished and set up for service. Local steamship agent was Patterson Wylde & Co., while the forwarder was Panalpina World Transport Ltd.
