    About BNSF’s Aurora, IL Reload Facility
    This facility is operated by Partners Warehouse, LLC, of Chicago, IL, as Partners Dimensional Services. Partners Warehouse is a full-service warehouse company with over 20 locations in five states, and currently works closely with BNSF Railway at the Partners Warehouse location at our Logistics Park Chicago development in Elwood, IL. Partners Warehouse’s knowledge of the local market, combined with their experience working with Lumber and other Building Products in dimensional facilities, makes them a natural fit to operate the facility.

    Last year BNSF and Partners Warehouse made several enhancements to this 13-acre facility, including:
    Improved existing warehouse space and track and road infrastructure
    Enhanced security features
    Newly available trucking services

    Both organizations realize the tremendous long-term potential of the Chicago-area housing and lumber market, and position this facility as a premier location for dimensional rail shipments.

    If you have any questions regarding this facility, please contact your BNSF Sales Representative at 888-428-2673.
