BNSF is one of North America’s leading freight transportation companies. The company operates in 28 states and two Canadian provinces. BNSF offers shipping services over one of the largest rail networks in North America, and contributes to the economy in massive ways. BNSF hauls enough coal to generate 10 percent of the electricity produced in the United States. It moves sufficient fertilizer every year to nourish a field the size of the state of Kansas and enough lumber to build 500,000 homes.
