BNSF delivers goods in four main categories:

  • Agricultural products
  • Consumer products
  • Industrial products
  • Coal

In a year, we haul enough grain to supply 900 million people with a year’s supply of bread and enough steel tonnage to build more than 200 Empire State Buildings. A new car or truck is loaded onto or unloaded from a BNSF train every 11 seconds.
