BNSF Continues to Monitor High Winds Across Network

Severe storms and high winds continue to exist and develop in many locations across the network which has prolonged our empty container loading restrictions at BNSF Intermodal Facilities. As shared in our most recent service update, high winds can pose significant safety challenges to trains with double-stacked empty domestic or international containers. While no immediate ingate restrictions are in place, we will communicate in advance the need to reinstate them so that customers can make necessary preparations.

We appreciate your patience and support as these weather challenges are addressed. If you have any questions regarding your shipment(s), please contact BNSF Customer Support at 1-888-428-2673.
