BNSF 90073: Beverages Price Adjustments Effective January 1, 2012

In addressing our customers’ needs for reliable and efficient service, BNSF continues to invest in our infrastructure and manage escalating costs. We review and adjust our transportation rates based on market conditions to support the ongoing investment and maintenance of our extensive network.

In accordance with BNSF’s Industrial Products Price Calendar, beverages in BNSF 90073 will be adjusted effective January 1. For planning purposes, rate increases will average 3.3 (three and three-tenths) percent. Certain individual rate increases may exceed or fall below announced levels based on market conditions. Also as of January 1, BNSF 90073 will be based on mileage-based fuel surcharge for all car types.
