Ingate Change for International Containers Shipped from Cicero, IL to Tacoma, WA

Effective Monday, May 23, 2011, BNSF will no longer accept International Intermodal containers destined for Tacoma, WA (TACBLAIR, TACEXP, TACPCT, TACSIM) in the gate at the Cicero, IL, Intermodal facility. These containers must instead be delivered to the Chicago, IL (Corwith) Intermodal facility. This change is intended to help reduce single-unit dwell times and improve total transit time from Chicago to Tacoma.
