BNSF to Serve the Port of Benton Effective July 20, 2009

Effective Monday, July 20, 2009, BNSF will provide service to and from the Port of Benton in Richland, Washington. This change will allow BNSF to serve customers directly and eliminate the need for an interchange with the Tri-City and Olympia Railroad Company (TCRY) at the port.

BNSF will provide scheduled service on this line Monday through Friday, and service for unit trains as necessary.

Customers shipping to and from the Port of Benton will not need to make any billing changes.
