About Union Pacific

In 1862, just across the Missouri River in Council Bluffs, Iowa, Union Pacific began its journey to connect our nation east to west. Today, from our headquarters in Omaha, we connect American people to American industry and, in turn, to the rest of the world.

Almost everything you come into contact with – things you eat, things you touch, everyday "things" – spent some time, in some form, on a Union Pacific train.

We ship the raw materials and finished goods that America depends on. Industrial products and coal. Fertilizer. Fuel. Chemicals for nearly every industry. Automobiles, appliances, the beef in your stadium dog and the beverage in your souvenir cup. From 2007-2013, Union Pacific invested more than $21.6 billion in its network and operations to support America's transportation infrastructure. We provide value to our 10,000 customers by delivering products in a safe, reliable, fuel-efficient and environmentally responsible manner.
