Welcome to Merchants Distribution Service

Merchants is literally at the crossroads of America - the intersection of Interstates 80 and 35 in Des Moines, Iowa. Almost any place in the continental U.S. is just three days by truck, a few more by rail. It is no secret that a public warehouse offers storage. However we offer much more. We have established ourselves as specialists in Rail - to - Truck and Truck - to - Rail, serving the paper, lumber, manufacturing, and agriculture industries. Merchants Distribution Service offers our customers cost competitive solutions. Merchants Distribution also offers these advantages to our customers:

  • the ability to respond to changing needs
  • we are owner operated and owner managed with over 100 years of history to prove our claims.

If this is the type of service provider you are looking for, we invite you to browse through our pages to discover how we may be of service to you.
