Reminder: Demurrage and Storage Policy Changes Effective July 15, 2014

As announced in customer advisories on June 17 and June 25, the Surface Transportation Board (STB) issued new rules regarding liability for demurrage charges. As a reminder, the new rules go into effect tomorrow, July 15, 2014.

You can also click on the BNSF 6004 - Demurrage and Storage link on the bottom right of the customer screen at any time to find a copy of our rules.
