STORAGE
Independence Day is a U.S. holiday as outlined in the BNSF Intermodal Rules and Policies Guide and the BNSF Equipment Interchange Agreement. Below are storage rules applicable to holidays.

Storage free time is the amount of time allowed for a unit to be left at a BNSF facility once notification has been given that the unit is available for pickup or delivery. If the Independence Day holiday falls during the unit free time, the holiday will not be included in the calculation of storage charges. If notification is made on Independence Day, the day of notification will roll to Monday, July 6.

BNSF strongly encourages equipment pickup at facilities throughout the holiday period. Continual operations and pickups will alleviate congestion and avoid additional charges. If you have questions regarding storage, call our toll-free number, 1-888-428-2673, option 3, 3, 2.
