BNSF Intermodal and Logistics Park KC
Transportation via all modalities will soon converge in Edgerton, Kansas. When the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway
opens its intermodal facility — and the surrounding Logistics Park KC
comes to life — a city built by the railroad will return to its roots. Coming full circle, with open arms Edgerton embraces the growth and development that is knocking at its doorstep.
Edgerton will soon be home to a 1,000-acre development that will contain a 440-acre BNSF Intermodal Facility and the 560-acre Logistics Park-KC. The BNSF Intermodal Facility will provide businesses with a direct connection to the global supply chain via the BNSF's transcontinental railroad that begins in Long Beach, California and terminates in Chicago, Illinois. The facility will provide multi-modal transportation for many goods being imported from China and the Pacific Rim. The facility will offer companies the ability to quickly and efficiently ship goods by rail and truck to their final destinations.
|Kansas City is an excellent place for the Intermodal Facility because the Kansas City metropolitan area is one of the leading rail and distribution centers in the United States. With easy transportation access via rail and air, local and regional markets, Kansas City is positioned to serve the Midwest as a distribution hub well into the future.
