Rail News: Union Pacific Railroad

Food Logistics recognizes UP's sustainable shipping practices


Union Pacific Railroad was recognized last week by Food Logistics as a "Top Green Provider" for delivering fresh food and beverages, the Class I announced last week.

UP is the first large North American railroad to receive the recognition. The publication's annual list recognizes companies whose products, services or leadership enhances sustainability within the food and beverage industry, UP officials said in a press release.

"Our team is committed to enhancing sustainability by continually seeking new ways to improve operating efficiency and investing in technology that reduces our environmental footprint," said Jason Hess, UP's vice president of agricultural products.

UP also was recognized for investing in fuel-efficient equipment, such as its investment last year in 100 Tier 4 locomotives.
