Metals LOGs Auction 1-week "End of Month" May LOGs Permit

On Wednesday, May 9, 2018, guaranteed placement of 65 and 66-foot gondolas will be offered for the 1-week shipping period (May 21 - 27, 2018) through BNSF's Loading Origin Guarantees (LOGs) Program.

The 1-week LOGs permit provides guaranteed empty equipment for customers to:

  • Fulfill end-of-month demand surges
  • Take advantage of spot opportunities
  • Realize gains from shipments before new month starts
  • Add flexibility to existing LOGs commitments (currently limited to 20% weekly)

The 1-week LOGs permits have a modest $100 per car minimum bid and a 0% flex with a 1-car minimum. (Longer term permits have a $0 per car minimum bid and 20% weekly flex). The 1-week shipping period auction will only be held on Wednesday, May 9, 2018.

Additional "end of month" auctions are tentatively planned for June 13, July 11 and August 15.
