Reminder: Billing Changes for Moves on GNBC effective May 1

Effective May 1, 2013, Grainbelt Corporation (GNBC) will no longer be a handling carrier for BNSF Railway. The GNBC will now be considered a switch carrier. As such, all sand shipments to the north end GNBC, including Clinton, OK, should be billed to Enid, OK, with a delivery switch GNBC. A GNBC switch fee will appear as a line item on the bill. Base rates have been adjusted to allow the market time to adjust to the change. The lower base rates will remain in place until June 30, 2013. A subsequent announcement regarding base rate changes for July will be issued.

Base rates per lane are posted on the Carload Shipping Advisor.
