BNSF Automotive 2016 Independence Day Operating Plan
This year, the Independence Day holiday falls on Monday, July 4.
BNSF's Automotive 2016 operating plan for the Independence Day holiday will remain focused on meeting customers' expectations while aligning operations with reductions in volume. Due to expected lighter volume levels over the holiday and during model year plant shutdowns, we anticipate some extending of our service schedules as we consolidate volumes to fill trains. We expect that shipments from Sunday, July 3 through Sunday, July 17, may experience delays of up to 72 hours.
Reduced operations are not expected. BNSF will accept and deliver all regularly scheduled interchanges. Delays may occur on interline traffic if connecting carriers have reduced operations for the holiday.
AUTOMOTIVE FACILITY OPERATIONS
All Automotive facilities will be open during the holiday.
