Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad Company Surety Bond (BNSF Bond)

Bond Penalty: $5,000 or Greater Based on Shipping Volume

The Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad company has been in the rail shipping business for over 160 years. The BNSF specializes in the secure movement of all freight classes, commodities, chemicals, bulk foods and intermodal containers. To guarantee a shippers financial obligations to the railway the company requires a BNSF surety bond. The surety bond form is a strict financial guarantee. Because the railway offers access without financial assurance subject to certain credit qualifications the bond is subject to adverse selection. The company may also require the posting of bond when the shipper has a change of ownership.

The BNSF offers shippers a "turn key" solution to navigating the rail-movement sector. Per the rail company, "Expanding or developing a new rail-served facility can be challenging, especially when it comes to navigating through all the necessary processes. You can rely on BNSF to help guide you through all aspects of expanding or developing a new site, including evaluating and selecting the best options for your business."
