Continuance of Perishable LOGS Freight Incentive For Frozen Vegetables BNSFQ 112622 And Dairy BNSFQ 112424

BNSF will continue to offer perishable boxcar shippers a per car incentive for their commitment to the LOGS program. BNSF will offer a $150 freight rate deduction or allowance for all 13 week permit holders shipping under the BNSF public frozen fruits and vegetables document BNSFQ 112622 or public dairy document BNSFQ 112424.

The 13 week auction period will commence April 13, 2009, with auctions to be held each Monday (10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. CST) through and including May 4, 2009.

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.
