New Mexico provides transportation and storage logistics that make doing business simpler. Rail access is provided by both Burlington Northern Santa Fe and Union Pacific Railroads. In Belen, just south of Albuquerque, BNSF operates the largest inspection yard on the southern transcontinental corridor, linking Southern California and Chicago, and serves as a regional maintenance and fueling facility for trains up to 10,000 feet long. Additionally, the Sunset Route is the 760-mile Union Pacific corridor connecting the ports of Los Angeles and El Paso, is an important transcontinental route for goods and business.
The Union Pacific intermodal facility in Santa Teresa will provide increased service from Mexico by both road and rail, with established logistics parks that have rail spurs providing short-line railroad cross-docking services. The Santa Teresa and Columbus ports-of-entry have overweight cargo zones with a sixmile radius for trucks carrying a reducible load up to 96,000 lbs.
