Closer is Better

With volatile fuel costs and more stringent emissions standards, cutting all the extra miles you can from your supply chain is crucial. By locating at a BNSF logistics park, you realize significant cost savings and help to protect our environment.

BNSF Railway's logistics parks and intermodal facilities are strategically located so you can easily serve major markets across the country via our vast intermodal network. To see more, view BNSF's Intermodal Map.

Distribution Center Locations Let's say you're considering two locations for a distribution center.
  • Site A is at a BNSF logistics park.
  • Site B is 20 miles away.
With 5,000 annual inbound intermodal shipments:
  • You save $90 in drayage costs per unit at Site A.
  • You save $450,000 on your inbound shipments to your distribution center at Site A.
  • This equals $0.90 per sq. ft. for a 500,000 sq.ft. facility.

Foreign Trade Zone Benefits

To accommodate international shippers, some BNSF logistics parks are foreign trade zones, which are specifically designated areas considered to be outside the customs territory of the U.S.

The benefits of a foreign trade zone may include:

  • Accelerated supply chain
  • Merchandise processing fees reduction
  • Duty savings
  • Reduced inventory tax

With BNSF, locating your distribution center or warehouse at a BNSF logistics park is a simple process that involves coordinated efforts from you and the BNSF Economic Development team. Throughout the entire process, you can count on us to guide you through step by step.

  • Phase I - Gather information
  • Phase II - Review local developer strategies and BNSF's local intermodal network
  • Phase III - Analyze drayage and trucking data to calculate transportation savings
  • Phase IV - Coordinate introduction of the project to local economic development agencies and developers
  • Phase V - Send/receive your first shipments with BNSF
