U.S. Representative Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) released updated fertilizer shipment data from BNSF Railway and Canadian Pacific Railway (CP). BNSF reports it has achieved its goal of delivering 52 trainloads of fertilizer over a six-week period beginning April 12, with 56 trainloads delivered as of May 29. The CP report notes 229 train cars were delivered in North Dakota during the week of May 18, an increase from 175 cars during the week of May 11.

“This is encouraging news for our producers. With fertilizer needs largely met, BNSF and CP Railway can more closely focus on agriculture product shipment needs in the region. I will continue working with the rail companies to monitor progress and facilitate updates,” said Cramer.

The U.S. Surface Transportation Board (STB) ordered BNSF and CP to provide weekly updates on their efforts to ensure timely delivery of fertilizer shipments for the spring planting of U.S. crops in light of freight rail service delays. This week’s documents from BNSF and CP are the sixth and final reports under this directive.
