BNSF as the Billing Carrier on BNSF-Published, Public, Interline Price Authorities

To improve the accuracy and timeliness of freight billing to our customers, BNSF plans to amend all BNSF-published, public, interline price authorities to require that BNSF will be the carrier responsible for issuing the freight bill.

Effective June 1, 2007, payment of freight charges on all BNSF-published, public, interline price authorities will be changed to add the following provisions:

    Freight charges must be “Prepaid” when BNSF is the Originating Carrier.
      Freight charges mush be “Collect” when BNSF is the Terminating Carrier.

    Please note that this change does not affect the customer’s ability to specify the appropriate Freight Payor. This change is only intended to ensure that BNSF will be the billing carrier when a BNSF price authority is being used.

    If you have not already established credit with BNSF, you may contact Angela Chilcutt at 817-352-4194 or angela.chilcutt@bnsf.com.

    If you have any questions, please send an email to Customer.Notifications@bnsf.com
