Solutions that make sense

Whether you require multiple carriers, expedited service or just a cost-effective way to get from A to B, Union Pacific has the flexibility to meet your shipping needs.


In addition to UP's dedicated workforce, our service is continuously improved with the use of cutting-edge technology. Every locomotive we operate is tracked via GPS. Automatic Equipment Identification dramatically streamlines the inventory process.

These technologies have translated to faster transit times, greater reliability and higher customer satisfaction.
