Billing Changes for Moves on Tacoma Rail Effective February 1, 2018

BNSF Railway is in the process of modifying the accounting relationship we have with Tacoma Rail (TMBL and TRMW). Beginning February 1, portions of the TMBL/TRMW lines that are currently considered BNSF handling carriers will change to a switch carrier relationship.

You will continue to issue your bills of lading to BNSF & pay BNSF freight bills. However, customers with shipments moving on either TMBL or TRMW may have a delivery switch fee applied as a line item on freight bills.

If you have questions, please contact your BNSF representative.

Your business is important to us. Thank you for choosing BNSF Railway as your transportation service provider.
