International Intermodal Service Changes From Oakland International Gateway Effective July 24, 2009

BNSF is making changes to International Intermodal container service from Oakland International Gateway, effective Friday, July 24, 2009. To support shifting volumes and recent changes to vessel service by our carrier partners, destinations with a Saturday cutoff will now have a one-day earlier cutoff (Friday). The availability for these destinations will thus be one day earlier as well. There will be no change to cutoff or availability time of day. Destinations with a cutoff other than Saturday will not be affected.

For more information, please see the attached schedules.
