BNSF Railway exceeds fertilizer delivering goal

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer says BNSF Railway has exceeded its commitment to send additional trains hauling fertilizer to the Dakotas, Minnesota and Montana.

The Republican from North Dakota says BNSF delivered 56 trainloads over the past six weeks. The company had committed 52 trains to catch up on fertilizer shipments.

The Surface Transportation Board last month ordered BNSF and Canadian Pacific Railway to submit their plans to ensure fertilizer was available for spring planting.

Increased crude oil and freight shipments have largely been blamed for causing the rail delays. The railroads have blamed bad weather and rail traffic congestion.
