BNSF Intermodal 2017 Thanksgiving Operating Plan

This year, BNSF will observe the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, November 23 and Friday, November 24. BNSF will continue to operate Intermodal trains over the Thanksgiving holiday and a majority of our Intermodal facilities will maintain regular hours of operation. Connecting carriers who have reduced operations for the holiday may cause delays on interline traffic. Due to lighter volumes of traffic and possible train consolidations, shipments from Tuesday, November 21 through Monday, November 27 may experience delays of up to 48 hours.

Please see the attached matrix for all hub hours during the holiday period.
