BNSF Automotive: 2018 Independence Day Operating Plan
BNSF’s Automotive 2018 Independence Day operating plan will remain focused on meeting customers’ expectations while matching operations to any reductions in traffic volumes. This year, the Independence Day holiday falls on Wednesday, July 4.
BNSF will operate automotive trains over the Independence Day holiday and our automotive facilities will remain fully-staffed and open for haulaway 24/7. Connecting carriers who have reduced operations for the holiday may cause delays on interline traffic. Due to lighter traffic volumes over the holiday and during model year plant shutdowns, we anticipate some extending of our service schedules as we consolidate volumes to fill trains. We expect that shipments from Tuesday, July 3 through Sunday, July 15 may experience delays of up to 48 hours.
For interactive tracking 365 days a year, please use BNSF’s Tracking tool by logging in with your user name and password and selecting Track Your Shipment. For service issues, please call 888-428-2673 and select option 4, then option 3.
Customer Support will maintain a limited staff on Independence Day. Standard coverage will resume on Thursday, July 5.
