  3. Rail Industry Overview

  4. Industry OverviewAmerica’s Railroad Industry Railroads remain the backbone of America’s freight transportation network • U.S. railroads operate over 140,000 miles of track and earn an aggregate freight revenue of nearly $57 billion • In the United States, railroads account for more than 40%* of all freight (more than trucks, boats, barges or planes) *Measured in Ton Miles • 70% of all autos produced in America move by rail • 30% of all U.S. grain moves by rail • 65% of the coal is moved by rail which in turn produces half of America’s electricity • U.S. Railroads move enough: • Wheat to provide every person with a loaf of bread 6 days/week • Concrete to build 45 miles of new highway every day North American railroads form the world’s most efficient and lowest-cost freight network Source: American Association of Railroads (AAR)

  5. Industry OverviewA key link in the U.S. Supply Chain 71% of America's GDP is driven by the consumer Seamless network of manufacturers, retailers, distributors, transporters, storage facilities and suppliers Rail delivers everything Americans consume everyday: • Cars and Combines • Clothes and Shoes • Stereos and TVs • Food and Water • Lumber and Steel • Energy and Fuel • … many others, such as bread and cereal

  6. Industry OverviewTypes of Railroads Class I • Annual revenues in excess of $340M • Operations range from 3,200 to 32,000 miles • Typically concentrate on long-haul, high-density intercity traffic lanes • Seven Class I railroads in North America Regional • Operate at least 350 miles of track • Earn $40 million or more in revenues • 33 Regional railroads Local Linehaul • Operate less than 350 miles of track • Generate less than $40M in operating revenues • 324 local linehaul railroads

  7. Industry OverviewNorth America Rail Network • Over 160,000 miles of track • Over 165,000 railroad employees • Over 500 shortline railroads • BNSF operates more than 32,000 miles of track BNSF CN CP CSX NS UP FXE

  9. Industry OverviewGoverning Bodies of The Rail Industry • Association of American Railroads (AAR) • Department of Transportation (DOT) • Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) • The Surface Transportation Board (STB) • U.S. Customs • Various State and Municipal Agencies • Dept. of Homeland Security

  10. BNSF Overview

  11. BNSF OverviewAbout Us A Berkshire Hathaway Company Unlike other forms of freight transportation, our trains operate on an infrastructure built and financed almost entirely by the railroad Every day, we deliver trainloads of consumer goods, agricultural products, industrial products, and coal to customers acrossour 32,000-mile rail network 10

  12. BNSF OverviewOur Ancestry Some Predecessors of Burlington Northern Santa Fe • Great NorthernGN • Northern PacificNP • Chicago, Burlington and QuincyCB&Q • Spokane, Portland and SeattleSP&S • St. Louis-San Francisco (Frisco)SLSF • Fort Worth-DenverFWD • Colorado SouthernCS • Atchison Topeka and Santa FeATSF

  13. BNSF OverviewOur Vision Our vision is to realize the tremendous potential of BNSF Railway by providing transportation services that consistently meet our customers' expectations.

  14. BNSF OverviewBNSF Network Route Miles: 32,000 Number of Employees: 40,000 Locomotives: Approx. 6,400 Average Freight Cars on System: 200,000

  15. BNSF OverviewBNSF: Size and Scope • 32,000 route miles in 28 states and two provinces • Approximately 6,400 locomotives and 200,000 freight cars • Employs approximately 40,000 people • Operates an average of 1,400 freight trains per day • Moves one fourth of the nation’s rail freight • Serves all major ports on the West Coast and Gulf of Mexico • If stacked end-to-end, all the intermodal loads shipped with BNSF in one year would reach from Los Angeles to Shanghai 6 times. • Leads rail industry in technological innovation • Has one of the largest computer systems in the world to manage our network operations 24 hours a day

  26. Why Rail?

  27. Why Rail?Key Benefits • Fuel Efficiency – On average, railroads are three or more times more fuel efficient than trucks. • Highway Gridlock Reduction – A typical train takesthe freight equivalent of several hundred trucks off our highways. • Cost Efficiency – In general, shippers pay less for shipping freight via rail, rather than other forms of land transportation. • Environmental Friendliness – The EPA estimates that for every ton-mile, locomotives emit roughly one-third the amount of nitrogen oxides and particulates. Source: AAR

  28. Rail is 2-8 times more fuel efficient than trucks 2.3x 4.3x 5.5x 8.2x *Based on a 1,500 mile truck haul

  29. Railroads can help reduce highway congestion BNSF is the largest intermodal carrier in the world Each year, BNSF moves about 4.6 million containers and trailers One BNSF intermodal train removes more than 280 long-haul trucks from our nation’s highways

  30. Why Rail?Best Value for Your Shipping Dollar Dollar-for-dollar, shippers receive the best value by usingrail service: • Market pricing allows for better predictability and planning • Real savings on transportation costs vs. truck • Direct rail service allows movement of any size shipment

  31. Rail emits a fraction of total U.S. green house gas (GHG) emissions Rail = 2.6% of GHGs Trucks = 21% of GHGs • In 2008, BNSF moved 4.7 million containers and trailers, reducing GHG emissions by more than 7 million metric tons • Rail industry moved 11.5 million containers and trailers, reducing GHG emissions by more than 17.2 million metric tons

  32. Why BNSF?
