North Dakota Port Services, Inc. is a privately-owned, intermodal service company located in Minot, North Dakota, providing a link to the world’s marketplace to and from North Dakota and its neighboring states and provinces. The Minot Intermodal Facility serves the region’s agricultural and energy sector more than 250 miles around Minot. Serviced by Burlington Northern Santa Fe’s Northern Tier Intermodal Line, ND Port Services is located adjacent to BNSF’s main-line switch yard with daily service and 4-lane highway access.
Ackerman-Estvold and Ackerman Surveying have worked with North Dakota Port Services on initial and subsequent master planning and related design and construction of their 140+ acre development since 2007. The intermodal facility project has included design of approximately 5,000 linear feet of rail for line storage of intermodal (truck to rail) shipping containers, site grading, roadway improvement, water, and sewer.

As the project continues to expand, we are currently designing a six square mile rail yard addition that includes over 30 miles of track, significantly increasing the size of the current facility.
