Rail access

The Benicia Industrial Park is served by two rail lines served by Union Pacific Railroad. They provide transcontinental "piggyback" services (i.e. transporting loaded truck trailers on flat cars). Siding and tie-ins at company facilities allow direct service to rail cars providing efficiency and convenience.
