BNSF Private Chassis Management Program

In an effort to improve fluidity and throughput at BNSF facilities, BNSF is developing a management program for private chassis at select facilities. BNSF plans to pilot this program at Logistics Park Chicago, Corwith, and Kansas City, Kansas facilities. The pilot period will simultaneously allow BNSF to test associated processes and will allow carriers to become familiar with the program.

    BNSF is hosting a meeting in Chicago on October 26, 2006, to provide an overview and answer questions about this new program. Your BNSF Intermodal Sales Representative will be contacting you with more information about the upcoming meeting, including agenda, location and start time.

    OCEMA Cooperative Chassis Pool Update
    In addition to the above initiative, BNSF is one of several railroads participating in the OCEMA sponsored Cooperative Chassis Pools. These pools have been introduced at BNSF Railway’s Denver and Memphis facilities.

    These consolidated chassis pools have already produced benefits to carriers through more efficient equipment utilization and reduced congestion, and by reducing the number of chassis in operation at BNSF facilities. If your company is interested in participating in these chassis pools or in expanding these cooperative pools at other BNSF facilities, please contact your BNSF Marketing Representative at 1-888-428-2673.

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