Canadian National (CN) Embargoes in Effect

Due to a labor dispute, Canadian National Railway (CN) has issued embargoes, effective immediately, impacting all traffic billed to/from CN-served locations in Canada. Customers with shipments designated for interchange to/from CN should expect delays.

BNSF is monitoring the situation closely and positioning traffic to support a smooth reopening once the embargoes are rescinded.
