Perishable Boxcar LOGs Auction Continues on July 31, 2017

BNSF will continue to offer, through upcoming auctions, the guaranteed equipment and placement of 72-foot refrigerated boxcars for 26-, 13- and four-week permits through BNSF's Loading Origin Guarantees (LOGs) Program.

The next auctions will be held Monday, July 31, 2017 (10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. CST), Monday, August 7, 2017 and Monday, August 14, 2017, unless all available equipment has already been allocated.

The following key features continue for the 72-foot refrigerated boxcar LOGs program:

  • The weekly ordering flex will remain at +20% with a one-car minimum.
  • A term flex of -5% will continue for all 26-week permit holders.
  • LOGs Rules language continues to be more specific concerning how shortfall penalties will be determined, as well as what will be considered an eligible LOGs shipment. (The number of eligible Bill(s) of Lading submitted showing the LOGs permit number during the LOGs period will be used to determine the shortfall.)

For further details about the BNSF LOGs Program, please consult Rules Book BNSF-7.

For information about the various LOGS applications and how to use the program, please review the
LOGs quick reference guide.
