  • SP Newsprint has benefited from Pronto Distribution's unique proximity to the rail yard. They have access to boxcar switching seven days a week by both the BNSF and UP railroads. We are now able to use BNSF service and receive the added advantage of rate competition between the two railroads. Pronto has been great to work with and we really appreciate their can-do attitude.
