BNSF Intermodal Service Changes Effective June 14, 2007

BNSF continues to focus on maximizing capacity to improve service and meet your shipping needs. To improve the consistency of service between our Chicago area ramps and Oakland International Gateway, the following changes are being made:  

    ·  BNSF will offer three-day-a-week service from our Corwith ramp to Oakland International Gateway
    ·  BNSF will offer one-day-a-week service for loads between Logistics Park Chicago and Oakland International Gateway.  Empties service will be scheduled one day a week as well, but will run more frequently as volume dictates
    ·  Attached are the new customer goals for Oakland International Gateway
     
In addition, Denver to Pacific Northwest Wednesday cutoff is being shifted to a Tuesday cutoff in order match in-gate volumes. See attached schedules.
