BNSF Outlines Fertilizer Shipment Plan To Feds

BNSF Outlines Fertilizer Shipment Plan To Feds
BISMARCK, ND -

BNSF Railway Co. has told a federal oversight board that it will add 52 trains in the Dakotas, Minnesota and Montana over the next six weeks to boost fertilizer shipments.

The Surface Transportation Board this week ordered BNSF and Canadian Pacific Railway to report their plans by Friday to ensure delivery of fertilizer shipments for spring crop planting.

BNSF beat the deadline. Canadian Pacific had not filed a response by midday Thursday.

The federal board ordered the railroads to submit the plans in the wake of service disruptions. Increased crude oil and freight shipments have largely been blamed for causing the rail delays.

BNSF says in its response that it began expanding its fertilizer shipments this week and the railroad "already is seeing positive progress."
