Rail Transload, Cargo Securement

Mexico Heavy Haul OTR Move

Ocean Freight; Mexico Port to Door

Transformer Move by Rail

Two 114 metric ton transformers were moved by rail along with ten truck shipments from Mexico to Thayer, KS. The shortest and most cost-effective route was key to this shipment’s success. To reduce truck delivery costs, BNSF Logistics leased a private rail spur near the final destination. 

Factory Relocation from US to Mexico

A global door manufacturer successfully relocated two factories to Tijuana and Monterrey, Mexico with the help of our Mexico and St. Louis, MO branches. BNSF Logistics currently brokers the manufacturer’s cross-border raw and finished products transportation needs.

Heavy Haul – Poland to Mexico

BNSF Logistics transported a 213 metric ton generator from Poland to Mexico. BNSF Logistics’ World-wide carrier partnerships and knowledge of port limitations eased our customer’s concerns in this ocean freight delivery to the Mexican Port and final port to door truck delivery.
