Ferrocarril Mexicano, S.a. De C.v. Key Developments

BNSF Railway Company and Ferrocarril Mexicano, S.a. De C.v. to Launch Service Between Chicago and Silao, Mexico

BNSF Railway Company and Ferrocarril Mexicano, S.a. De C.v. announced their new intermodal service between Chicago and Silao, Guanajuato, Mexico. BNSF and FXE hosted customers, Intermodal carriers and elected officials during an opening event to showcase the new service at the expanded FXE Silao Intermodal Facility inside the Inland Port of Guanajuato in Silao, Guanajuato. This new intermodal service provides customers with a reliable and a fast transportation option to move goods across the border. The new service is scheduled to start May 27, 2014. Trains carrying intermodal containers will interchange at El Paso, Texas to and from FXE, Mexico's large railroad, which will operate the trains between the border crossing and Silao five days a week. Intermodal shipping is the transport of shipping containers using multiple modes of transportation - in this case, truck and rail. This new intermodal service will provide customers with opportunities for growth in the expanding Mexico market. The service is better at the border when compared to trucking because there is no cross-border trucking across congested highway bridges. Southbound shipments are moved in-bond (which means shipment documentation is handled at the final destination) to minimize Mexico Customs clearance delays. Once the shipments arrive in Silao customers can clear their cargo with the customs broker of their choice through Mexico Customs. Northbound shipments are pre-cleared by a customs broker of the customer's choice with U.S. Customs. SF and FXE have made significant investments and improvements to ensure the reliability and operating success of their rail networks.
