Movements of Canned Goods, Milk Products and Other Consumer Products
Effective immediately, it is the customers’ responsibility to verify that a through rate is published before releasing a car. Rates can be verified by checking www.railprices.com, or contacting your sales or marketing representative prior to shipping.
Cars released without a valid through rate will automatically be billed Rule 11, and the customer will receive a bill from BNSF and the connecting carrier. Pricing exceptions for cars already moved without proper through rates will no longer be made.
If you have questions regarding this new requirement, please contact your BNSF Sales Representative at 888-428-2673, or email VICC@bnsf.com. Your business is important to us. Thank you again for choosing BNSF as your transportation provider.
