3 ns engines and double stack Intermodal cars


At NS we care about each other, our customers, the communities we serve, and the planet we call home. That’s who we are and our decisions reflect our values. Those values drive our commitments to safety, sustainability, going the extra mile for our communities, and building a company culture where everyone can thrive. 

Everything Starts With Safety 

Rail is the safest, most efficient, and most sustainable way to transport goods over land. And every day, we take meaningful action to make our railroad even safer. 

Sustainability Means Business

Sustainability drives us. In 2007, we named the industry’s first chief sustainability officer, and in 2021, we set an ambitious, science-based target to drastically reduce GHG emissions by 2034. Let us help you grow with the most sustainable way to ship freight over land. 

Who We Are

We are building a customer-centric, operations-driven organization, that will be the gold standard of safety in the industry. We are committed to developing our people, protecting the communities we serve, and providing long-term growth for our customers. 

Going the Extra Mile for Your Community

Rail delivers more than freight. It builds foundations. We are dedicated to supporting the communities where we live and operate by working with local officials, engaging with residents, and leading initiatives to keep cities and towns across America safe and thriving.
