Union Pacific Railroad (UP) is consolidating its s Wichita, Kan., service unit management with divisions Kansas City, Mo., Fort Worth, Texas, and North Little Rock, Ark.
Union Pacific Railroad (UP) will consolidate its Wichita, Kan. service unit management with its Kansas City, Mo., Fort Worth, Texas, and North Little Rock, Ark. divisions, effective May 1, the company said in a statement.
As a result, the Omaha, Neb.-based Class I freight railroad will reassign three management positions to other locations.
The transportation, engineering, mechanical, maintenance and other operations necessary to continue running the railroad, however, will remain in place, and the realignment will result in an operating structure similar to what was in place in Idaho prior to 2005, according to UP.
The move, which comes after a similar consolidation in Pocatello, Idaho, is part of a larger effort at UP to “align operations to meet customer demands amid marketplace shifts,” the company said.
