Dayton's Bluff Automotive Facility Embargo

On Monday, June 23, BNSF began to experience flood like conditions on the Automotive Unloading Facility at Dayton's Bluff, MN. The facility has been temporarily closed and water levels are not expected to crest until later this week. As a result, on Monday, BNSF issued an embargo, prohibiting the way billing of any additional loads destined to the Dayton's Bluff Auto facility.

BNSF will issue an update on the situation next Monday, June 30. In the meantime, BNSF representatives will be contacting our affected customers to discuss specific alternate freight routing options to minimize the impact of this closure.
