Ingate Change for International Containers Beginning April 1, 2013

Effective Monday, April 1, 2013, BNSF will no longer accept International Intermodal containers destined for Tacoma, WA (TACBLAIR, TACEXP, TACPCT, TACSIM) in the gate at the Chicago, IL, (Corwith) Intermodal facility. These containers must instead be delivered to either the LPC Intermodal facility in Elwood, IL or to the Cicero, IL, Intermodal facility. Reducing origin points from three to two will consolidate density, thereby reducing origin dwell and improving overall performance.
