About Us

Agmark began operations in 1977 as a commodities brokerage firm, specializing in the cash market for soybean meal, aligning buyers and sellers and arranging transportation. By the early 1980’s railroads and trucking had been deregulated. Agmark Intermodal Systems was born from the opportunity ship bulk agricultural products by rail for the long haul and transload the railcars to trucks for local delivery. This presented feed mills and other agricultural concerns with the opportunity to combine rail economics and truck service and to avail themselves of a second source for transportation and a new set of origin points for their commodities.

In the late 1980’s piggyback was transformed from trailers that were backed onto flatcars into dedicated trains of containers and trailers handled in modern mechanized rail facilities. Agmark Foods began operations in 1988 shipping milk from Wisconsin to Florida and orange juice back to Chicago in special built tank containers, via high speed trains. Today, the Agmark companies serve America’s foremost food and beverage concerns, offering an array of competitive bulk agricultural products and transportation services.
