Big Lift Automotive Facility to Open June 1, 2014

On June 1, 2014, BNSF will open Big Lift, a new automotive facility located just south of Denver, CO.

Designed to accommodate the growing demands of automotive shippers, this 57-acre facility has more than three times the acreage of our existing facility and offers more capacity and greater highway access. Among the features the new facility will offer are:

  • 12,000 feet of track
  • 2,200 paved parking bays – nearly 50 percent more than our existing facility
  • 61 unloading spots – more than double compared to the existing facility – to reduce dwell time

The Big Lift facility is located at 6996 W. Titan Rd., Littleton, CO 80125, with convenient access to Highway 85.
    BNSF will begin transitioning service from our Irondale Vehicle Facility, which is located at 9101 Yosemite in Irondale, CO, to the new Big Lift facility as the opening date nears. As the transition nears, BNSF will send out additional communications to customers that will provided more detailed information about the service transition dates and the schedules for phasing in customers and a map of the new facility.

    To help prepare our customers’ systems for the transition, please use the following codes effective immediately:
    • The SPLC code is 746422
    • The FSAC code is 57800
    • The AAR Industry code is CO014
