by Canadian Shipper

Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railway Company (BNSF) has opened a new US$80 million intermodal facility in Stockton, California.

The facility was designed to improve the efficiency of moving merchandise into and out of northern California, covers 425 acres and offers improved access to the interstate highway system and other railroads.

The facility is to improve service reliability on BNSF’s intermodal network, particularly between northern California and the Midwest.

Annual intermodal lift capacity in the Stockton area will increase 150 per cent, from 120,000 to 300,000 units annually.

The new facility contains two loading and unloading tracks, averaging 7,000 feet in length, with the capacity to hold approximately 150 intermodal railcars. Three storage tracks will accommodate 230 intermodal railcars and will have more than 800 container and trailer parking spaces.
