Schneider, a premier provider of truckload, intermodal and logistics services, has recently begun offering intermodal services at the BNSF Barstow, California, ramp. This new intermodal ramp service provides shippers in the eastern region of Southern California, Las Vegas and western Arizona with a cost-competitive transportation option to Chicago and northeastern U.S. markets.

Service to and from the Barstow ramp will go directly to Chicago five days per week. It offers a five-day transit time that’s cost and service competitive with truckload. The new ramp is located just northeast of San Bernardino, California, only 150 miles from Las Vegas.
“San Bernardino has experienced a lot of growth in recent years, creating capacity issues for shippers in the region,” says Jim Filter, senior vice president and general manager of Schneider’s Intermodal division. “We’re pleased that our intermodal service through the Barstow ramp provides a new option that delivers more capacity at a competitive rate and reliable transit times.”
With the addition of the new Barstow ramp, Schneider now offers intermodal service to more than 40 ramps throughout North America.
