Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) railway serves industrial areas in Cedar Hill, with connection to the Union Pacific Intermodal Center in Wilmer, TX, approximately 16 miles east of Cedar Hill.

Cedar Hill is a partner with the International Inland Port of Dallas (IIPOD), which is located approximately 20 minutes away.The IIPOD is a public-private partnership, serving as a third phase of regional intermodal development (building off of DFW Airport and AllianceTexas). It is a key driver in making Dallas the nation’s premier logistics and distribution center. IIPOD is a catalyst for Southern Sector investment, job growth and development of sustainable communities, with a goal of increasing the city-wide tax base.

Located in Southern Dallas County, the entire project’s impact area covers 234,000 acres and encompasses ten municipalities. The project takes advantage of the region’s superior transportation infrastructure, which includes five interstate highways and two Class I railroads (Union Pacific and Burlington Northern Santa Fe), and is focused at the confluence of Interstates 35, 45, 20 and the future Loop 9.

As envisioned, when completed, the project will serve as a prominent inland port, with enhanced security (through technology) to facilitate the customs process and expanded Foreign Trade Zone acreage. The total project is estimated to take 30 plus years to complete.
