Congestion – Los Angeles-Hobart Facility

Due to heavy westbound shipments during the Holiday this advisory is to notify international customers that some units have been grounded. We ask that customers pick up units in lots 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, Bell, and Commerce. These units are on chassis and have been notified of their availability. Storage charges will be assessed per normal storage policy.

Customers are being asked not to pick up units in lot 5 and 6. Units in these lots are grounded and no storage charges will be assessed due to their being ground stacked. Units ground stacked will be placed on chassis as yard inventory levels are worked down over the next several days.

Please be patient while BNSF is managing through high inventory levels.
