Expanding or developing a new rail-served facility can be challenging, especially when it comes to navigating through all the necessary processes. You can rely on BNSF to help guide you through all aspects of expanding or developing a new site, including evaluating and selecting the best options for your business.

With BNSF, establishing a new rail-served facility is a routine three-phase process that involves coordinated efforts from you and our Economic Development team. Throughout the entire process, you can count on us to guide you through step-by-step.

  • Phase I - Gather information
  • Phase II - Develop infrastructure and operating plan
  • Phase III - Construction and send/receive your first shipments

Complete details on each of the three phases can be found by reviewing our customer guide to establishing new rail served locations.  

In some cases, transloading might be your better option for incorporating rail into your transportation strategy.
