BNSF 90096: Poison Inhalation Hazard / Toxic Inhalation Hazard (PIH/TIH) Commodities Price Adjustments Effective March 16, 2011

In a Pricing Update on December 8, 2010, BNSF announced that prices in BNSF 90096, originally scheduled to adjust on January 1, 2011, per BNSF’s Industrial Products Price Calendar, would be extended through March 15, 2011. This announcement is to notify customers that, as previously announced, effective March 16, 2011, toxic inhalation hazard and poison inhalation hazard (TIH/PIH) commodities, will incur price adjustments. Also, the BNSF 90096 price document will be streamlined through a transition from group-to-group to point-to-point rates and adjustments to gateway and other rate structures.

In addition, appropriate rate adjustments will be made to reflect BNSF’s rebased fuel surcharge based on a $2.50 HDF strike price. The fuel surcharge and credit program will apply as stated in BNSF Rules Book 6100 series, item 3376.

Rates will be posted to the BNSF Price Publications Web page today. To view the rates, please click here.
