BNSF Railway (BNSF) have announced that construction is now underway at it's newest logistics center at Hudson. The development is designed to help customers more easily reach Denver and surrounding markets via new rail-served sites. Like other BNSF Logistics Centers, customers locating at Hudson can save nine months or more of development time and expense.

The new center will address the needs of of Denver’s growing market and the site is located approximately 25 miles north of Denver International Airport and 30 miles northeast of downtown Denver. This offers unrestricted access to a high population growth area where the industrial market continues to strengthen. Low industrial vacancy rates in the Denver area make Hudson the optimal location for anyone seeking a rail-served site.

BNSF Logistics Centers focus on offering direct rail service in multi-customer, multi-commodity business parks. BNSF invests directly in the development of the facility to create sites in under-served, strategic, end-user markets. These facilities can service carload, unit train customers, or both.

Hudson Town Manager Guy Patterson said:

“The Town of Hudson is thrilled to have entered into a long-term relationship with BNSF. This logistics center is not only important to Hudson but it now makes the town an important regional center. BNSF has been tremendous to work with and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for us."

Colby Tanner, assistant vice president, economic development said:

“Establishing logistic centers, including the one in Hudson, is the latest way we are working to make sure new, existing and potential customers who want to locate on rail in a densely populated, growing industrial market have the option to do so. By purchasing and developing land in advance, we can help our customers save time and money when they are looking to expand or relocate their facility."
