South Koreans tour KCS facilities to expand knowledge of North American rail operations


This week, South Korean National Railroad representatives are visiting Kansas City Southern's Kansas City, Mo., and Shreveport, La., facilities to gain an understanding of a U.S. Class I's safety programs, transportation procedures and operations logistics, according to a prepared statement.

North and South Korea expect to connect their government-run railroads to create business opportunities with Russia and China. The South Koreans are especially interested in North American railroads' relationship; how they compete and interchange with one another, and manage hazardous materials and environmental concerns; and the government's industry involvement, KCS officials said.

Next week, the South Koreans plan to tour rail facilities in Mexico City.
