BNSF Railway Co. recently recognized 106 customers with its annual Product Stewardship Award for the safe transportation of hazardous materials by rail during 2019. 

Companies receiving the award transported an established minimum of loaded tank cars of hazardous materials with zero non-accident releases during last year's full transportation cycle, BNSF officials said in a press release.

In addition, those receiving the awards upheld the ethics of product stewardship under the American Chemistry Council's Responsible Care® initiative.

Several of this year's recipients have obtained the stewardship award in the past, including 14 companies that have attained the honor for 10 or more years.

With its award, BNSF recognizes customers that "exemplify the highest safety standards," said BNSF Executive Vice President of Operations Katie Farmer.

"With a strong partnership and a continued dedication to excellence in safety, we can both ensure that moving hazardous materials by rail will remain the safest land transportation option," she said.
