Union Pacific Eastbound Trains Now 5 Days A Week

November 8,2107-

Screen Shot 2017-11-08 at 2.03.51 PMUnion Pacific announced earlier this year it had acquired most of the RailEx business including the terminal in Delano that has 225,000 sq. ft. of refrigerated space. The firm transports fruits, vegetables and other temperature-sensitive cargo across the United States. Now UP has announced the refrigerated trains departure eastbound to New York will increase to five a week, Tuesday through Saturday beginning November 1. The rail company formerly shipped three days a week from Delano. With refrigerated truck loads costing more – UP expects to be competitive with this increase.”Loads have doubled since the announcement” says Delano UP market rep Lee Brown.

Brown points to rising freight rates by rival trucks this year and says it will get worse in coming weeks with the December 18 mandate that all commercial interstate vehicles install electronic logging devices to ensure compliance with hours-of-service laws.
