The BNSF rail network serves the western two-thirds of the United States
and extends into the southeast. The rail network creates a powerful
distribution system for shippers and their customers and their customers
directly served by rail. To reach customers beyond the rail network, BNSF
serves over 500 transload and multi-commodity distribution centers like Bakersfield QDC, Inc. This network is considered an extension of the core rail system and is managed by the Transload Services Group.
