BNSF to build another new logistics center

Burlington Northern Santa Fe railway announced this week that construction is underway on a massive new logistics center near Denver.

The company did not reveal the cost but said the 430-acre Logistics Center Hudson is located about 20 miles north of Denver International airport and 30 miles northeast of downtown Denver.

BNSF said the fully-permitted development is designed to help customers more easily reach Denver and surrounding markets via new rail-served sites. It will have 15 sites for customers who ship via individual railcars and a unit train site for those customers shipping entire trainloads. It will also have easy access to Interstate 76.

“Establishing logistic centers, including the one in Hudson, is the latest way we are working to make sure new, existing and potential customers who want to locate on rail in a densely populated, growing industrial market have the option to do so. By purchasing and developing land in advance, we can help our customers save time and money when they are looking to expand or relocate their facility,” said Colby Tanner, assistant vice president, economic development.

BNSF operates throughout Oklahoma and other Midwestern and Southwestern states. It was last summer when the railway debuted a 195-acre logistics center in Oklahoma City.
