BNSF Railway (BNSF) has premiered its newest logistics center to customers, local officials and community members at an event in Moore, Okla., near Oklahoma City. Logistics Center Oklahoma City is located within the city limits of Oklahoma City and Moore and is designed to accommodate manifest and unit train customers in addition to a site for storage.
“Logistics centers are just one way BNSF offers more choices, flexibility and efficiency for new, potential and existing customers,” said Colby Tanner, assistant vice president, economic development. “Logistics Center Oklahoma City provides unrivaled access to the state’s largest population center and one of our nation’s most prominent energy centers.”
The 195-acre site is located due east of BNSF’s Flynn Yard – an ideal location for both rail and highway access. A double-ended industry lead track will connect to the main line to serve customers at this location. Unit trains can arrive from either direction and without impeding access to manifest sites. All customers’ sites at Logistics Center Oklahoma City are customizable to fit their needs.
BNSF Logistics Centers focus on offering direct rail service in multi-customer, multi-commodity business parks. BNSF invests directly in the development of the facility to create sites in under-served, strategic, end-user markets. These facilities can service carload, unit train customers, or both.
BNSF Railway is one of North America’s leading freight transportation companies. BNSF operates approximately 32,500 route miles of track in 28 states and also operates in three Canadian provinces. BNSF is one of the top transporters of consumer goods, grain and agricultural products, low-sulfur coal, and industrial goods such as petroleum, chemicals, housing materials, food and beverages.
