BNSF Intermodal 2016 Labor Day Operating Plan

HOLIDAY OBSERVANCE
This year, the Labor Day holiday falls on Monday, September 5.

TRAIN SERVICE
BNSF will continue to operate Intermodal trains over the Labor Day holiday. However, due to lighter volumes of traffic and possible train consolidations, we anticipate that outbound and inbound shipments from Saturday, September 3 through noon on Tuesday, September 6 may experience delays of up to 24 hours.

INTERLINE TRAFFIC
Delays may occur on interline traffic if connecting carriers have reduced operations for the holiday.

INTERMODAL FACILITY OPERATIONS
All BNSF intermodal hubs will observe normal working hours during the holiday period.

CUSTOMER SUPPORT
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 provide normal coverage on the days before and after Labor Day. A limited staff will be available on Monday, September 5.
