SullivanPerkins serves as a creative marketing resource for BNSF Railway. So we were interested to note in Warren Buffet’s 2021 shareholder letter for Berkshire Hathaway that BNSF is referred to as one of the “giants” in Berkshire’s portfolio of companies. Just how big is BNSF? In 2021, the railroad carried 512 million tons of cargo, on BNSF trains that traveled 143 million miles. All of which added up to revenue of $22.5 billion and record earnings of $6 billion. What isn’t big is BNSF’s carbon footprint; indeed, long-haul transportation by rail for the nation’s essential products leads to a significant reduction in truck traffic and their higher emissions on our highways.
