North American freight transportation firm BNSF Railway announced Wednesday that construction work has started on its new logistics site in Hudson, CO. The project aims to provide the company’s customers with greater access to the industrial market in Denver and the surrounding area. 

Logistics Center Hudson, located near Interstate 76, will occupy 430 acres and include 15 sites for shipments in individual rail cars and a unit train site for clients to ship whole trainloads. BNSF will allow its clients to customize the sites based on their individual demands. 

“Establishing logistic centers, including the one in Hudson, is the latest way we are working to make sure new, existing, and potential customers who want to locate on rail in a densely populated, growing industrial market have an option to do so,” Colby Tanner, assistant vice president, economic development at BNSF, said in a company press release. “By purchasing and developing land in advance, we can help our customers save time and money when they are looking to expand or relocate their facility.”

The company did not specify when the project is slated for completion. Hudson is situated about 25 miles north of the Denver International Airport and about 30 miles northeast from downtown Denver. 

BNSF operates 32,500 miles of rail track across 28 states and in three Canadian provinces, transporting a variety of products including grain and agricultural goods, chemicals, petroleum, and housing materials.
