The Pacer Stacktrain unit of Pacer International, Inc. is expanding intermodal operations in conjunction with the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway. For the first time, Pacer Stacktrain has access to the entire BNSF intermodal network within the U.S. Interline service is available to and from Pacer-served locations on the CSX and CN railroads. According to Pacer, the expansion increases the company's market reach, service-level offerings and capacity in key intermodal lanes. Pacer has offered stacktrain service over the Union Pacific and CSX railroads since 1999. Its North American fleet of intermodal equipment exceeds 58,000 domestic containers and chassis. The new service opens access for customers to both the double-stack and expedited BNSF service networks, served exclusively by 53-foot containers. The expanded BNSF services will be merged with existing Pacer Stacktrain processes for customer support and equipment reservations. PacerDirect door-to-door service will also be available, the company said.
