BNSF customers significantly decrease their carbon footprint by converting their shipments from trucks to trains. A single double-stack intermodal train removes several hundred long-haul freight trucks from the highway. In fact, no other form of land freight transportation is by its very nature more fuel- and resource-efficient than rail. Rail also provides tremendous benefits by reducing our country’s overall transportation emissions and carbon footprint. In 2017, shipping with BNSF enabled our customers to reduce their total carbon emissions by 37.5 million metric tons. To learn more about the environmental benefits of shipping by rail, click HERE.
