BNSF Logistics on track with railcar

BNSF Logistics has expanded its fleet with the addition of a 20-axle railcar, the TEXX 900, which the USA-based logistics provider says provides more options for customers moving heavy and over-dimensional loads.

The railcar can handle cargoes weighing up to 408.2 tonnes. The deck space for cargo measures 40 ft x 4 ft x 9ft 6 inches (12.2 m x 1.2 m x 2.9 m), which BNSF Logistics claims makes the depressed deck railcar an ideal choice for complex project moves.

“We are excited for this new addition to the BNSF Logistics rail fleet. The TEXX 900 is one of three similar cars in North America and the only of its kind available for booking outside a private fleet,” said Dan Curtis, BNSF Logistics president.
