BNSF Responds to Growing Intermodal Demand in Memphis Region

Aug 16, 2021

In an effort to meet increased Intermodal demand in the greater Memphis region and unlock capacity, BNSF Railway has re-opened its Harvard Intermodal Facility located in Marion, Arkansas. Effective immediately, all International intermodal shipments originating at the Port of Long Beach’s Pier T Terminal will now terminate at BNSF’s Harvard Intermodal Facility. Additional origination locations and train starts are currently being evaluated. Harvard Intermodal Hub location details, hours of operation and driving directions are listed below:

Harvard Intermodal Facility Address:
5650 State Hwy 77
Marion, AR 72364

Planned Hours of Operation:
Monday – Friday: 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Saturday: 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Sunday: Closed

This facility is located 27 miles northwest of BNSF’s Memphis Intermodal Hub. Drivers will need to exit I-55 at James Mill Road and proceed east until they reach HWY 77 (where they will then need to turn south.) The Harvard Intermodal Facility is on the left.
