BNSF, Canadian National, CSX, Kansas City Southern, Norfolk Southern and Union Pacific services are instrumental for UPS to maintain efficient and on-time operations at its Chicago Area Consolidation Hub, according to UPS. Double-stack shipping is one way to provide "faster, quicker and smarter" freight transportation, said Ken Buenker, UPS vice president of corporate transportation services. Double-stack trains are also beneficial as they reduce road congestion, improve velocity, and lead to less emissions and fuel consumption, Buenker said.
