The BNSF Committee serves as liaison between the community of Clovis and the BNSF Railroad Company – the largest freight railroad network in North America. The committee meets quarterly to ensure that the community and company remain on track with operation updates, track expansions and more. The Chamber and CIDC’s goal to support key industries and employers in our area goes hand-in-hand with BNSF’s mission to support the communities where they operate.
BNSF Railway continues to be one of the three major economic pillars of the community and employs approximately 400 employees in the Clovis area. In addition to train crew positions, BNSF provides career opportunities in mechanical and electrical fields, engineering, dispatch, field operations management, IT/technology services and more.
In 2016, BNSF Railway presented the prestigious Heritage Community Award to the City of Clovis, celebrating the community’s strong relationship with the railroad for over a century.
