Rail union wants freight and passenger railroads to suspend sick leave policy and sanitize correctly during coronavirus outbreak.

BNSF on Aug. 21 officially debuted Logistics Center Oklahoma City, the railroad’s newest logistics center. Located in Moore, Okla., within the city limits of Oklahoma City, the Center is designed to accommodate manifest and unit train customers, in addition to providing a storage site.

The 195-acre site is located due east of BNSF’s Flynn Yard, described as “an ideal location for rail and highway access.” A double-ended industry lead track will connect to the main line to serve customers at this location. Unit trains can arrive from either direction and without impeding access to manifest sites. All customers’ sites at Logistics Center Oklahoma City “are customizable to fit their needs.”

BNSF Logistics Centers “focus on offering direct rail service in multi-customer, multi-commodity business parks,” BNSF said. “BNSF invests directly in the development of the facility to create sites in under-served, strategic, end-user markets. These facilities can service carload, unit train customers, or both.”

“Logistics centers are just one way BNSF offers more choices, flexibility and efficiency for new, potential and existing customers,” said Assistant Vice President Economic Development Colby Tanner. “Logistics Center Oklahoma City provides unrivaled access to the state’s largest population center and one of our nation’s most prominent energy centers.”
