Changes to BNSF Refrigerated Boxcars in Mexico Effective July 1, 2011

Recent high domestic demand for BNSF-owned refrigerated boxcar equipment has caused constraints to equipment availability. To help address these constraints, effective Friday, July 1, 2011, BNSF will no longer ship BNSF-owned refrigerated boxcars for export/import moves to and from Mexico.

For help with Rule 11 rates in private equipment to and from Mexico/U.S. border locations, or for other questions, please contact your BNSF Marketing Representative.

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