Demurrage Policy Change: Extended Use Fees for Mechanical Refrigerated Cars Effective August 1, 2015

In our ongoing effort to simplify demurrage policies, BNSF is updating our Demurrage Book 6004-C. Effective August 1, 2015, the Demurrage Book 6004-C will reflect the following change:

  • Section 3 - Extended Use Fees (EUF) for Mechanical Refrigerated Cars will be removed in its entirety. EUF fees for Mechanical Refrigerated Cars can now be found in BNSF Rules Book 6100A, Section 6.
All other dwell calculations will still apply. The revised Demurrage Book 6004-C can be accessed through the customer log-in on BNSF.com.

If you have any questions, please call BNSF's Demurrage team at 888-428-2673 and select options 3, 3 and 3, or email DemurrageDisputes@BNSF.com.

Your business is important to us. Thank you again for choosing BNSF Railway as your transportation provider.
