Systems Leadership: Carl Ice, CEO, BNSF Railway Company (video)

Carl Ice, CEO, BNSF

BNSF (domain: BNSF.com) moves 15% of the tonnage of all products between cities in the United States, said BNSF CEO, Carl Ice. Technology is rapidly changing most parts of their business, from logistics to locomotion to dispatch centers. "We can move one ton of freight over 500 miles on one gallon of diesel fuel. The locomotives are basically moving data centers."

During his visit to the Systems Leadership class on May 31, 2018, Ice discussed with Lecturer Robert Siegel how BNSF is working to expand customer outcomes and redefine what it means to be a railroad.
