)-- BNSF Railway Company has designated Mallory Alexander International Logistics, the operator of the Northern Plains Commerce Centre (NPCC) in Bismarck, North Dakota, as a member of the BNSF Premier Transload Network. This network is comprised of approximately 115 elite freight facilities.
The BNSF Premier Transload designation means that through the NPCC, a network of facilities are now available to provide rail services to even those industries that are not currently rail served. Businesses will now be able to take advantage of the long haul efficiencies of rail transportation, combined with the local distribution strength of truck transportation.
The NPCC is the only logistics facility in North Dakota with the BNSF Premier Transload designation. The facility includes a fenced, 4.5-acre area with transload capacity for the loading and unloading of eight railcars per day, as well as providing outdoor storage. The targeted commodities for this facility are lumber and construction materials, steel coil, pipe and machinery. The entire facility encompasses 243 acres with an adequate staging area for large project cargo.
The BNSF Railway Company operates one of the largest rail networks in North America with 33,500 route miles covering 28 states and two Canadian provinces.
