Rail is the most economical means to ship goods over land. BNSF hauls one ton of freight on one gallon of diesel fuel for approximately 500 miles. The cost-benefit of that is reflected in our customer’s bottom line.
Transloading acts as an extension of our rail network. This extension allows our customers with warehouses that are not rail-served to gain the efficiencies of rail without the expense of building the rail infrastructure. Once freight reaches our strategically-located hubs, our trucking partners complete last-mile delivery. Additionally, this provides flexibility for our customers’ storage capacity, sourcing short-haul delivery of inventory from multiple locations to a rail-served site.
