Ozark Transmodal, Inc.

A&M sister company, Ozark Transmodal, Inc. (OTI) was created in 2003 to offer full service transportation and logistics solutions to customers who are not rail served. Since its inception, OTI has grown from one location to three: Butterfield, MO, Springdale, AR and Ft. Smith, AR. A total logistics package, including transloading and storage, is available at each location. The A&M/OTI partnership offers the ability to ship or receive multiple commodities with ease, as our knowledgeable staff assists with car orders, rates and routing, loading and unloading, bills of lading, as well as any documentation required for inventory tracking while your product is in our facility's care.

OTI Butterfield Sand Station

OTI transloads concrete and mason sand from railcars to a storage area, where it is then loaded into trucks for pickup or delivery. The newly built Butterfield Sand Station features increased capacity of approximately 8-10,000 tons, an automated weighing system, and state of the art conveyor and dual track unloading pit. Although primarily used for sand, Butterfield also offers outdoor storage and transloading capabilities for other commodities, such as lumber and scrap iron.

The sand facility is a convenient and efficient supply alternative for asphalt, concrete and ready mix companies located in Southwest Missouri and Northwest Arkansas, including Branson, Cassville, Ozark, Purdy, Shell Knob, and Springfield, MO and Berryville, Eureka Springs, and Harrison, AR.

For customers in need of sand hauling services, OTI has initiated partnerships with local trucking operations for sand hauling service for direct, local deliveries to our customer's concrete or asphalt plants.

For more information on how we can assist you in your sand needs please call Will Barnes, Superintendent of Transload Operations, at (479) 530-1824.
