(Neb)-Union Pacific Names New COO

By: John Axtell Posted at: 01/08/2019 11:54 PM
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The Union Pacific railroad has hired an industry veteran to lead its efforts to change the way the railroad operates. New Chief Operating Officer Jim Vena worked at Canadian National for 40 years before retiring in 2016.

     THe 60-year old Vena will oversee the UP's efforts to implement the scheduled operating model the U-P began phasing in last year.

    The new lean, tightly scheduled operating plan is similar to the one CSX has been using successfully and is based on what Canadian Pacific and Canadian National have been doing for years.

     The Omaha-based Union Pacific operates 32,400 miles of track in 23 western states.
