BNSF 90015: Generators and Transformers Price Adjustments - New Single Freight Rate Effective March 1, 2015

In accordance with BNSF's Industrial Products Price Calendar, generators and transformers in BNSF 90015 will be adjusted and converted to a single freight rate, inclusive of fuel costs, effective March 1.

As previously advised, BNSF will convert all public price authorities in 2015 to a single freight rate and remove the application of a fuel surcharge. As a result, the idler/buffer car rate will now be inclusive of fuel costs and adjusted to $2500. Please make any necessary adjustments to your billing systems to reflect this change.

Rates will be posted to the BNSF Price Publications Web page prior to February 1, 2015.
