Road from BNSF intermodal facility to Beyond Warehousing

Utilize the Heavy Haul Corridor

Containers up to 58,000 pounds can be moved over the road from the BNSF rails to Beyond Warehousing with no additional fees compared to a standard 40,000-pound container. Transloading less than a mile from the intermodal facility ensures low drayage costs and that containers are returned to the rail within their allowed window to avoid fees.

Lower Container Costs by up to 33%

A standard container weight of 40,000 pounds ensures trucks don’t exceed the gross vehicle weight limit for U.S. roads. Keeping containers at standard weight allows them to be transported on roads without transloading first, but many companies reach 40,000 pounds before filling their containers. Partnering with Beyond Warehousing and using the heavy haul corridor to ship up to 58,000 pounds reduces the number of containers needed and leads to lower costs.
