Grain Shuttle Train Program

A Grain Train Shuttle is a dedicated set of 110+ covered hopper cars for loading of whole grains that move as a unit (train) from one origin to one destination. The Shuttle Operator and Union Pacific enter into a contract to move this train on a continuous basis for a specific time, generally one year. The Shuttle Operator is provided an incentive for their commitment and there are incentives to the loading/unloading facilities for fast loading/unloading.
