Certified Sites

One way BNSF works to ensure the right solution is offered to each customer is by scouting out potential sites for development in advance of customer inquiries. BNSF's Site Certification Program identifies optimal rail-served sites and conducts in-depth reviews of ten economic development criteria to determine if the site meets BNSF’s stringent readiness standards, which are intended to minimize development risks customers may face.

BNSF certification means customers will receive an inventory of sites on BNSF's network that have gone through a rigorous review to confirm the site is shovel-ready for development.
