MATSON LAUNCHES INTERMODAL TRAIN SERVICE WITH BNSF
Burlington Northern and Sante Fe Railway Co. and Matson Intermodal System Inc., a subsidiary of Matson Navigation Co., have started operating an intermodal train service along the Interstate 5 corridor linking Los Angeles and Seattle.
Pacific Coast Express offers regular, twice weekly service for international steamship and commercial customers moving freight up and down the West Coast.
The new rail service comes after Matson Navigation restructured its Pacific Coast ocean-based program from a weekly port-to-port service to rail. Added frequency will allow customers more flexibility, Matson said.
