BNSF and KCS to provide intermodal shipping solutions between Mexico and the US

BNSF Railway Company (BNSF) and Kansas City Southern (KCS) have announced plans to launch a joint service offering intermodal transportation connecting markets on the BNSF network with consumer and industrial regions on the Kansas City Southern de México network.

The service offers connection to some of the most important consumer and manufacturing regions in Mexico. Trains moving in both directions carrying 53 ft intermodal containers will interchange at Robstown, Texas.

Erik Hansen, KCS Vice President Intermodal, said,  “The Kansas City Southern Railway Company in the US and Kansas City Southern de México are proud to partner with BNSF to expand the portfolio of services we offer in our cross-border product, enabling our shippers to compete more effectively in the market and provide enhanced supply chain logistics to the customer.”
