Pole Flats (89 ft.) LOGs Rollover and Auction - Rollover by January 6, 2016 - Auctions Begin January 18, 2016

BNSF is offering current 89 ft. Pole Flat LOGs permit holders the option to rollover their current weekly commitment at $0 premium. The official rollover instrument will be sent this week to the email address on file for existing LOGs permits. Permit holders must execute the rollover via email by January 6, 2016.

Following the rollover, BNSF will post the remaining available weekly LOGs capacity during the week of January 11, 2016. Based on equipment availability and the results of the rollover option, BNSF will offer the remaining LOGs capacity beginning Monday, January 18, 2016. All eligible customers (per the LOGs rules) will continue to have the opportunity to bid in the LOGs auction. LOGs customers will be subject to the same pricing as non-LOGs shipments.

Guaranteed equipment and placement of 89 ft. Pole Flats will be offered for a 26, 13 and 4-week permit through BNSF's Loading Origin Guarantees (LOGs) Program.

The auctions will begin Monday, January 18, 2016, with auctions to be held each Monday (10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. CST) through and including Monday, February 1, 2016, or until all available equipment has been allocated, whichever is sooner.

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