BNSF preps for UPS' peak season


BNSF Railway Co. has a new slogan for the United Parcel Service (UPS) peak season this year: Perfection isn’t a goal, it’s the goal.

The peak season for BNSF’s second-largest intermodal customer will run from Nov. 27 to Dec. 23. In the 25-day peak period last year, the railroad successfully delivered 26,397 UPS trailers containing more than 39.5 million packages, according to an item posted on the “BNSF News” Web site.

The Class I aims to provide UPS on-time and damage-free service. To that end, the railroad will continue to recognize employees who “go above and beyond” to meet service goals through a “Good Saves” program. Last year, BNSF received more than 100 Good Save nominations for employees who demonstrated resourcefulness, teamwork and quick actions, the railroad said.
