The Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railway Company and Norfolk Southern Railway Company announced that they are now offering what they say is the first-ever, coast-to-coast guaranteed intermodal service between Southern California and the Northeast.

Shippers will have the option to purchase -- for a premium -- seamless, coast-to-coast guaranteed intermodal service for domestic and international container loads of freight moving between San Bernardino, Calif. And Harrisburg, Pa. For each load that does not meet the scheduled availability time for customer pick-up, BNSF and NS will offer a 100-percent refund.
"The new BNSF/NS service extends BNSF's guaranteed network to a total of 16 lanes," said Steve Branscum, group vice president, BNSF Consumer Products Marketing. "It is designed to attract a greater share of the freight moving over-the-road between Southern California and the Northeast by giving shippers a risk-free transportation alternative."
