Rail Service is an integral component of BCS’ logistics. Our oceanfront Roeder Campus features 8 rail loading locations, adjacent to our frozen and dry storage warehouses, and with direct access to our private ocean terminal. We can make a direct connection between vessels, railcars and trucks at a single location. Every year BCS customers ship tens of millions of pounds by rail, and we have the capacity and warehousing to ship much more by rail.
BNSF supplies the rail service to BCS. BNSF Railway is one of North America’s leading freight transportation companies with a rail network of 32,500 miles in 28 states and 3 Canadian provinces. BNSF’s website describes their fresh and frozen service, featuring satellite temperature monitoring, including dairy, fruits, vegetables, meat, poultry, fish, and consumer and industrial products.
BNSF North American rail service dovetails perfectly with BCS’ 18 SQF Warehouses and our Private Ocean Terminal, and our real time online WMS systems. Rail service is one of the many logistic advantages of BCS.
