Like all PNR stations, this station is at grade. It is located on the East Service Road of the South Luzon Expressway in Taguig City, on the foot of the Metro Manila Skyway. It is named after its major landmark, the grounds of the formerly state-owned Food Terminal, Inc. which is now renamed as Arca South

The station is the thirteenth station from Tutuban and is one of two stations serving Taguig City, the other station being Nichols.
