Perishable LOGS Freight Incentives For Frozen Vegetables BNSFQ 112622 And Dairy BNSFQ 112424

BNSF is offering perishable boxcar shippers per car incentives for their commitment to the LOGS (Loading Origin Guarantees) program. BNSF will offer a $300 discount for all 26-week permits, and a $150 discount for all 13-week permits, shipping under the BNSF public frozen fruits and vegetables document BNSFQ 112622 or public dairy document BNSFQ 112424. There is no discount for 4-week permits.

The 26-, 13- and 4-week auction period will begin Monday, July 13, 2009, with auctions to be held each Monday (10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. CST) through and including Monday, August 3, 2009, or until all available equipment has been allocated.

Permit holders may choose if they would like their incentive in the form of a freight rate deduction or as an allowance payment. Choosing a freight rate deduction will result in the freight payor receiving a discounted freight bill. Allowance payments are made directly to the permit holder regardless of the freight payor. Permit holders who elect to receive their LOGS discount by allowance will receive their payment by ACH deposit, and can sign up prior to the auction by completing the attached form. Customers will receive payment details when their deposit is made.
