Additional Perishable LOGS Auction and LOGS Freight Incentive For Frozen Vegetables BNSFQ 112622 And Dairy BNSFQ 112424

BNSF will update its Perishable Loading Origin Guarantees (LOGs) auction calendar to provide shippers an additional opportunity to secure guaranteed equipment. Along with this calendar modification, BNSF will offer perishable boxcar shippers a per car incentive for their commitment to the LOGS program.

The additional auction period will begin February 17, 2009, and end February 20, 2009 (10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. CST daily). There will be both an 11- and 24-week offering. The shipping period for both offerings will commence March 2, 2009, and will terminate on May 11, 2009, for the 11-week offering, and August 15, 2009, for the 24-week offering.

As a reward for commitment to the LOGS program, BNSF will offer the following freight rate deduction or allowance to those permit holders shipping under the BNSF public frozen fruits and vegetable document BNSFQ 112622.
24-week LOGs permit holders will receive an additional $300 freight deduction
11-week LOGs permit holders will receive an additional $150 freight deduction

Additionally, BNSF will offer the following freight rate deduction or allowance to those permit holders shipping under the BNSF public dairy document BNSFQ 112424, excluding any bin returns.
24-week LOGs permit holders will receive an additional $300 freight deduction
11-week LOGs permit holders will receive an additional $150 freight deduction

Permit holders may choose if they would like their reward 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 faster by utilizing ACH deposit (in two days, instead of two weeks). Customers will receive payment details when their deposit is made.
