Changes to Outgate Procedures at OIG Effective March 22, 2011

BNSF is making a change to outgate procedures at the Oakland International Gateway (OIG) facility in Oakland, CA, to further increase shipment security.

Beginning Tuesday, March 22, 2011, release numbers will be required at outgate for all departing intermodal units picked up by customers or their motor carrier agents. This change will not affect BNSF-obligated deliveries to the marine terminals.
