Different rail carriers have their strengths. For some, it's fast, consistent long-haul business. For others, it's knowing the ins and outs of regional markets so that products can be gathered and delivered quickly and easily.
The BNSF Shortline Development Group brings these elements together, facilitating interaction between shortline carriers and various functions within BNSF, including the sales, marketing and operations functions.
We connect with all other Class I carriers, and approximately 200 shortlines, regional carriers and switch carriers. These long-term relationships supply shippers and receivers with seamless, efficient transportation from door-to-door, providing the most direct, efficient and cost-effective passage possible.
