Corporate Responsibility Report

BNSF Logistics has spent two decades managing the flow of items both big and small over land, through the air, and across the sea. When viewed one job at a time, the potential impact to the world around us doesn’t seem very significant. When viewed collectively, however, the size of our company’s — and our industry’s — footprint becomes clearer. By being deliberate in the services we provide and the solutions we recommend, we can generate value for our customers and communities while creating a satisfying workplace for our employees and the carriers we work with.

The people-centered Culture at BNSF Logistics embodies many different elements. It’s about always looking for new ways to solve problems and not being afraid to make mistakes. It’s about being an inclusive and collaborative workplace. It’s about openness and being willing to express new ideas. It’s about growth, both personal and professional, and supplying our employees with the tools they need to be successful. Most important, our culture is the way we work not only with each other but with our customers, vendors and in the communities where we live and work.

Technology

 

We use technology to simplify and improve the experience of our customers, carriers and employees. By moving beyond the traditional third-party logistics (3PL) model that solely focuses on shipping goods, we can step back and take a broader look at what’s possible, thereby increasing efficiency and reducing harmful impacts to businesses and the environment.

Safety

 

Transporting complex, costly shipments of goods via land, air and sea is not without risk, which is why BNSF Logistics fosters a culture of safety and responsibility that is reinforced through comprehensive rules, guidelines and consistent training. The goal of all training programs is to keep our employees, our carriers and the communities we serve safe.

To do this, we provide:

  • Regular, effective safety communications
  • Continuous learning opportunities
  • Measurement
  • Accountability via continuous adaptation

Growth & Capabilities

 

Helping our customers run successful, sustainable enterprises requires more than rolling out the same old answers, regardless of the unique requirements of a job. It requires identifying—or in some cases, inventing—the right solutions. To do this, we collaborate with clients to gain a deep understanding of their businesses, end-to-end processes and key initiatives. As supply chains continue to evolve, we are dedicated to providing the best solutions for our customers and for the communities we serve. Our focus on innovation, engineering and capabilities within the renewable energy space offers our customers a variety of solutions that set us apart in the industry.

Community

Our dedication to the communities where we live and work is a natural extension of our dedication to our fellow employees and to our principle of respecting and serving everyone. Simply put, people come first at BNSF Logistics. As a result, we work to develop strong relationships with the communities around us and the causes that matter to us as a company and as individuals.
