Burlington Northern Santa Fe Hobart Yard AGS Project

The BNSF Hobart Yard located in the City of Commerce is the largest intermodal rail yard in the United States. A staggering 1.5 million containers pass through its gates annually. Sully-Miller Contracting, Co. installed a new highly-advanced gate system designed to accommodate the large volume of containers coming through, increase security and promote accuracy.

The system photographs the driver, rig and container (s) at the gate. Then, all barcodes in the photo are recognized, scanned, saved and processed. The same procedure occurs upon exiting.

In addition to installing the new automated gate system, Sully-Miller Contracting, Co. removed various civil improvements and structures, installed new asphalt and concrete pavement as well as the entire infrastructure required to support the new system. This included building a two-story structure made of various materials including metal. Project execution occurred in a live train yard with 4,000 containers coming through each day.

The electrical system required to power the new structure and new technology was quite complex. Sully-Miller worked closely with Remprex Engineering during installation and completed the job in the 6 months allocated.
