Two of BNSF Railway Co.’s automotive facilities were recognized last week by the Association of American Railroads (AAR) as some of the best in North America.

Operated by Inter-Rail Group, Kansas City Auto received Origin of the Year and San Diego Automotive was awarded Destination of the Year, demonstrating a commitment to outstanding and unmatched service, BNSF officials said in a press release.

The awards were accepted at the Damage Freight Prevention Convention, which was held in Minneapolis.

“This is the first origin award win for BNSF, and the first time for us to have both origin and destination wins in a single year,” said BNSF Director of System Hub Operations Tara Sprinkle.

Stringent audits of the automotive facilities are conducted unannounced by MxV Rail at all rail-served facilities, including plants and ports across North America. Audit metrics include operation safety, quality, physical security and facility maintenance.
