Omaha, Nebraska Intermodal Facility Update

In anticipation of flooding from the Missouri River in the Omaha, Nebraska area, BNSF is taking steps to protect customer shipments, along with personnel and equipment. Those steps include the suspension of Omaha Intermodal facility operations beginning June 9th at 5pm.

We encourage customers to pick-up all notified units at the Omaha Hub prior to this time. Customers may continue to tender westbound traffic at Omaha until 5pm June 9th. BNSF is also taking steps to reroute and hold Omaha traffic accordingly.

After June 9th, shipments normally originating or terminating at Omaha will be accepted through the Kansas City Intermodal Facility, as an alternative, until operations at Omaha can safely resume.

If you have any questions, please contact BNSF Customer Support at 1-888-428-2673, option 4, option 3.
