* Please note that interline traffic will NOT be impacted by the schedule changes into Cicero. This change applies to BNSF Cicero local destinations only. Traffic for local distribution should be billed to Logistics Park Chicago (LPC).

Also, due to decreasing volume, the Monday cutoff from St. Paul to the Pacific Northwest will be eliminated. This will require a change of cutoff day at Dilworth as well, to facilitate the schedule change. This cutoff will be reinstated if future volumes warrant.

Questions regarding these changes should be addressed to your BNSF Sales Representative at 888-428-2673. Your business is important to us. Thank you again for choosing BNSF as your transportation provider.
