Extension of Tiered Discounts at BNSF Logistics Center Fontana

BNSF and Tristar FLC will continue to offer tiered discounts on centerbeam and boxcar transloading services at BNSF Logistics Center Fontana. Effective immediately, this incentive program has been extended through February 14, 2010.

The tiered discount applies to lumber and panel shipments in centerbeams and boxcars billed to and unloaded at Logistics Center Fontana between now and February 14, 2010. The discount is based on the number of shipments waybilled during a calendar month, as follows:

1-19 cars: $200 discount per car (automatically discounted from your Tristar invoice)
20+ cars: $350 discount per car (Tristar will refund customers at this volume level an additional $150 per car, retroactive to the first car shipped that month, at the end of each month.)

These discounts do not apply to One-Price (bundled) documents.
