BNSF Intermodal Service Changes Effective June 29, 2007 (unless otherwise noted)

BNSF continues to focus on maximizing capacity to improve service and meet customers’ shipping needs. To improve the consistency of service and increase total capacity, BNSF will be making the following intermodal service changes:

Southeast Corridor:
BNSF is establishing loaded and empty goals for our direct service from the Atlanta, GA, intermodal facility to Southern California On-dock facilities.
The days of service between Atlanta, GA, and Los Angeles, CA (BNSF direct), will change to a Monday through Saturday service in both directions, effective June 16, 2007.
In the Los Angeles, CA, to Austell, GA (BNSF-Dallas-NS) lane, the Wednesday and Sunday cutoffs move to Thursday and Monday, effective June 20, 2007.
Atlanta, GA, to Oakland International Gateway (BNSF direct) service will be offered on Wednesday.
See attachment A for schedules.

    The Sunday cutoff from Logistics Park Chicago to Tacoma, WA (Tacoma PCT, Tacoma Blair, Tacoma EXP and Tacoma SIM), will be replaced with a Saturday cutoff.
    We will eliminate Denver, CO, to Omaha, NE, container service due to a decrease in volume over an extended period of time.
    From Chicago, IL, to Alliance, TX, the Saturday cutoff will move to a Sunday cutoff.
    See attachment B for schedules.
