Changes to BNSF Private Empty Car Return Policy

BNSF’s current private empty car return policy, as outlined in Freight Tariff RIC 6007-N, Section 2, Item 442, allows for 90 days from the loaded waybill date for customers to return the equipment from a loaded trip free of charge.

Based on your feedback, effective Friday, April 1, 2011, BNSF will extend the private empty car return policy to allow 150 days from the loaded waybill date for empties to be returned free of charge.

This policy does not include tank cars which are covered by RIC 6007-N, Section 1.

If you have any questions, please contact your BNSF Marketing Representative.

Your business is important to us. Thank you for choosing BNSF Railway as your transportation service provider.
