BNSF breaks ground on logistics center near Denver
BNSF Railway Co. announced yesterday that construction is underway on its newest logistics center, located in Hudson, Colorado, near Denver.
The Logistics Center Hudson is designed to help customers more easily reach Denver and surrounding markets through rail-served sites, BNSF officials said in a press release.
The 430-acre center — situated about 25 miles north of Denver International Airport and 30 miles northeast of downtown Denver — will feature 15 sites for customers that want to ship via individual rail cars and a unit-train site for customers that want to ship entire trainloads.
“Establishing logistics centers, including the one in Hudson, is the latest way we are working to make sure new, existing and potential customers who want to locate on rail in a densely populated, growing industrial market have the option to do so. By purchasing and developing land in advance, we can help our customers save time and money when they are looking to expand or relocate their facility,” said Colby Tanner, BNSF's assistant vice president, economic development.
BNSF logistics centers focus on offering direct rail service in multi-customer, multi-commodity business parks. The Class I invests directly in the centers' development to create sites in under-served, strategic, end-user markets.
