Every day, we at BNSF Railway operate thousands of trains across a 32,500-mile network in 28 states and three Canadian provinces. Our employees make an enormous contribution to the U.S. economy by moving the goods people need in their daily lives.
BNSF delivers goods in four main categories:
In a year, we haul enough grain to supply 900 million people with a year’s supply of bread and enough steel tonnage to build more than 200 Empire State Buildings. A new car or truck is loaded onto or unloaded from a BNSF train every 11 seconds.
