BNSF Honors Shippers for Safe Hazmat Transport

BNSF Railway Company on April 21 honored 86 shippers with BNSF's Annual Product Stewardship Award for the safe transportation of hazardous materials by rail during 2008.

These 86 award-winning companies have successfully implemented the ethics of Product Stewardship under the American Chemistry Council's Responsible Care® initiative. Last year, BNSF presented 74 customers with its Stewardship Award.

"BNSF is pleased that the number of customers who receive its Stewardship Award continues to grow. This clearly demonstrates the industry's focus and commitment to the safe transportation of hazardous materials," Katie Farmer, BNSF vice president, Industrial Products Sales, said at a special presentation at BNSF's corporate headquarters in Fort Worth. "The product stewardship of these 86 customers helps support the safety of our employees, the communities we serve and the environment."

Implemented in 1997, BNSF's Product Stewardship Award is presented to shippers who transported a minimum of 500 loaded tank cars of hazardous materials during the previous year with zero non-accident releases (NARs) (releases that are not caused by a derailment or collision) during the entire transportation cycle.
