Refrigerated Boxcar Fleet Now Fully Upgraded

In an effort to improve refrigerated boxcar availability across our network, BNSF has upgraded its 72-foot refrigerated boxcar fleet so that customers have the ability to book equipment regardless of origin/destination.

Effective this November, references to CARB compliance will be removed from the Railcar Equipment Request tool when placing equipment requests. Customers will now select the 72-foot refrigerated boxcar for all refrigerated requests.

If you have additional questions regarding BNSF’s refrigerated equipment and transportation alternatives, please contact your marketing representative or BNSF’s Carload Equipment Team at 888-428-2673 (select options 4, 4 and 1).

Your business is important to us. Thank you again for choosing BNSF as your transportation service provider.
