BNSF Launches Collaborative Online Supply Chain Forum

FORT WORTH, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BNSF Railway today announced it has launched a collaborative online Supply Chain Forum aimed at encouraging understanding, participation and discussion about the important infrastructure and supply chain issues facing the United States. The site features a new video outlining the benefits of a strong supply chain, how it works, and the challenges the U.S. faces to maintain and improve its supply chain advantages.

“It is our hope that this online forum will increase the focus and the dialogue on the nation’s supply chain challenges and the public policy solutions to those challenges.”

The U.S. supply chain involves the entire transportation and distribution infrastructure used to deliver all of the materials the U.S. consumes and produces. Thanks to the size of its freight rail, highway, water, pipeline and air infrastructure, the U.S. has long enjoyed a competitive advantage with some of the world’s lowest supply chain costs as a percentage of GDP compared to Europe or China. This supply chain cost advantage has helped create more wage headroom for U.S. workers.

However, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, the U.S. population is expected to exceed 370 million by the year 2030. With supply chain capacity largely filled, these increases promise growing strains on our infrastructure.

“To help keep America and American jobs competitive, the supply chain must be a national priority,” said John Ambler, BNSF vice president, Corporate Relations. “It is our hope that this online forum will increase the focus and the dialogue on the nation’s supply chain challenges and the public policy solutions to those challenges.”

Ambler says BNSF launched the blog in an effort to attract additional attention and discussion on the public policy solutions to supply chain issues and encourages other organizations and individuals to join the discussion.
