BNSF Announces Day of Week Pricing Program

Beginning October 15, 2019, BNSF Railway will initiate a new Day of Week (DOW) pricing program that will apply to certain segments of its Intermodal business. The program’s objective is to smooth freight flows across all days of the week. This action will help ensure BNSF provides its customers with enhanced service reliability and consistency. Uneven freight flows can result in network congestion, train bunching, or delays in unit availability. By making adjustments to freight flows across all days of the week, BNSF’s customers will benefit from available capacity and trucking partners will be able to access intermodal facilities more efficiently.

Please contact your BNSF marketing representative for specific details regarding this new pricing program.

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