The new Greer TBT terminal has 50 car spots with separate tracks for food products and can handle both dry and liquid bulk products. This facility features paving, security, full fencing, steam boiler for product heating, lighting, and 24-hour access and truck scales. All TBT terminals are open facilities and provide access to any qualified motor carrier.
Located at 1813 Hood Road in Greer, the terminal has convenient access to Interstate 85.
