Expanded Features Now Available For Carload Pipeline Report Tool

Last year BNSF released a powerful tool to help carload customers efficiently manage capacity and decrease demurrage. The Carload Pipeline Report tool in My Reports on bnsf.com allows you to see how many railcars you’ll have at your facility in the days and weeks ahead, and anticipate future demurrage charges so you can take action in time to avoid them.

Beginning today, you will see enhancements to the tool, giving you more flexibility in customizing your reports.

When creating or editing your Pipeline report layout, you will see a new Facility Profile section that allows you to specify:
Track Capacity – Limit the number of cars that can be spotted and loaded/unloaded by track number
Commodity Limits – Limit the number of cars that can be spotted and loaded/unloaded by commodity (STCC code)

When viewing your Pipeline report, the calendar forecast now takes into account days served to more accurately forecast placements.

If you need help with Carload Pipeline reports, please contact Janet Black at janet.black@bnsf.com or 817-867-6321.
