Pacific Northwest Marine Terminal Update

With some improvement in labor productivity at the Pacific Northwest marine terminals, BNSF Railway will remove gate restrictions today at 5 p.m. (CST) at Logistics Park Chicago (LPC) on originating shipments for Tacoma. Gate restrictions for originating freight out of Cicero and St. Paul will remain active. We will continue to monitor these and other inland locations.

As we communicated yesterday, BNSF is working with CSX and Norfolk Southern (NS) to restore normal traffic flows received at interchange locations.

In this fluid environment, we will continue working with our customers and terminal operators to keep resources and freight moving as quickly as possible, advising as conditions change.
