BNSF recognizes customers for excellence in product safety


BNSF Railway Co. recently honored 109 customers with its annual Product Stewardship Award for the safe transportation of hazardous materials by rail.

Implemented in 1997, the award recognizes shippers that transport a minimum of 500 loaded tank cars of hazardous materials during the previous year and record no non-accidental releases. The customers also upheld the ethics of Product Stewardship under the American Chemistry Council’s Responsible Care® initiative, according to a BNSF news release.

“Safety is always a priority in all our operations at BNSF. We take pride in celebrating customers whose priorities consistently align with our own," said BNSF Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer Matt Igoe. "These strong partnerships help us remain committed to moving materials safer than any other mode of land transportation.”
