New Checkpoint Processes to Begin At LPC on July 24, 2007
Effective Tuesday, July 24, 2007, at 12:01 a.m., BNSF will implement a new in-gate and out-gate checkpoint process at Logistics Park Chicago. This process will improve gate throughput and speed up driver time into and out of the facility.
· Drivers will perform the following inputs required to complete the transaction:
o Drivers enter the seal number on loads.
o For empty containers going to a CY pool, drivers must select the correct steamship line.
· Process is the same as the in-gate process outlined above, with the exception of driver inputs:
o Drivers input pick-up or booking number if required.
o Drivers enter or verify seal number.
o Drivers are asked if they want damage notations.
Bobtail entry and exit will follow the same process and requirements for driver identification into and out of the facility.
BNSF will maintain a staff of trained technicians to assist drivers in completion of their gate transactions. There is verbal communication to these technicians from all kiosks, and a driver assistance building is directly adjacent to the in-gate kiosks.
In the next several weeks, an additional security measure will be added to the system through use of biometric identification for each driver. Drivers’ fingerprints will be registered into the system and the biometrics will be used in lieu of the driver’s license number to further enhance the process. You will receive more information on BNSF’s use of biometrics in the coming weeks.
If you have any questions regarding the new process, please call BNSF Hub Operations at 817-867-6122. Trucking companies can contact the UIIA Service Center for help obtaining drivers’ PIN numbers at 877-438-8442 during regular business hours of Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time).
