Policy to Enhance Transportation Safety of Hazardous Materials To Be Delayed Until Further Notice

In a Marketing News on April 9, 2007, BNSF announced that it will provide discounted rates to shippers who transport toxic inhalation and poison inhalation hazardous commodities (TIH/PIH) in improved tank cars that meet the latest Department of Transportation (DOT) specifications. This program was originally scheduled to become effective on January 1, 2008, but will now be delayed until further notice.

If you questions regarding this matter, please contact your Marketing Representative at 888-428-2673.
