BNSF Railway Co. earlier this month introduced a new direct intermodal service option between the Pacific Northwest and the Ohio Valley region.
The new container-only service initially is being offered five days a week for eastbound and westbound freight originating and terminating at BNSF’s South Seattle Intermodal Facility.
Customers who originate shipments at the Seattle facility now can access some of the fastest growing industrial and consumer markets in and around northwest Ohio, BNSF officials said in a customer notification.
The new option stems from the growth of BNSF’s direct-rail intermodal service connecting California with the Ohio Valley.
