BNSF Railway Company (BNSF) recently announced its newest logistics center, Logistics Center North Houston at Cleveland. Once completed, the rail-served development is aimed at helping businesses increase their reach and speed to the densely populated Houston market and surrounding area.

Logistics Center North Houston at Cleveland hopes to address the needs of the ever-growing Houston market. Located next to I-69 and State Highway 105, the site provides unrestricted access to the Greater Houston area. With more than 1,100 total acres, the business park is capable of handling multiple commodities offering a rail-served site that is customizable. The facility features more than 20 new customer sites and has the ability to serve both manifest mixed freight and unit train single commodity customers.

“The reality of a BNSF Logistics Center is a game-changer for Cleveland’s industrial future,” said Mayor Otis Cohn. “Cleveland is perfectly poised for such a development as it is a vital and important link in our national transportation system. Cleveland lends itself to transportation services, located strategically as it is, but it took a company like BNSF to see and realize that potential.”

“BNSF’s Economic Development team strategically selects logistics center locations for the convergence of rail and road at underserved, key growing markets,” said Colby Tanner, AVP, Economic Development. “When our customers utilize the knowledge and expertise of our economic development team, they can expect to save significant time and money when locating their facilities at these prime locations, such as the Greater Houston area.”
