BNSF reveals 2023 economic development results


BNSF Railway Co. customer investments totaled more than $4.1 billion in 2023, the Class I announced in its annual economic development report.

Investments were made by supply-chain partners and customers, including Cenovus Energy and Green Bison Soy Processing LLC. As a result of their and other customer investments, BNSF projects supported the creation of more than 4,200 new jobs in local communities.

Last year's investments are the largest that BNSF customers and economic development organizations have made in new or expanded facilities in the past five years, BNSF officials said in a press release.

"We take pride in collaborating with our customers to create customizable rail development solutions that meet their unique needs and enhance and improve their supply chains," said Chris Danos, assistant vice president, economic development. “BNSF can also help create sustainable solutions while streamlining logistics costs."

New developments in 2023 supported various industrial and agricultural commodities in communities across the BNSF network.
