The Aberdeen & Rockfish Railroad Company was incorporated in 1892 and is
still owned by the family of its founder, John Blue. The railroad operates
between Aberdeen, NC and Fayetteville, NC and serves customers in Moore,
Hoke and Cumberland counties. For customers not served directly by rail,
A&R serves four transload facilities (in Aberdeen and Fayetteville) to help
make supply chains as seamless and efficient as possible. This is a
cost-effective way to combine the price advantage of rail with the
flexibility of truck delivery. It's also a good way to help forward
position inventory and to extend market reach beyond conventional logistics
constraints. The A&R interchanges with both CSX Transportation (at Aberdeen
and Fayetteville) and Norfolk Southern (at Fayetteville). The A&R also
serves the Hoke County Regional Industrial Park, the largest dual
rail-served industrial park in North Carolina. The Park is certified by the
North Carolina Department of Commerce and currently has approximately 850
acres of shovel-ready land for new industrial construction.
