Pacific Northwest Marine Terminal Update

Unfortunately, the ongoing situation in the Pacific Northwest continues to negatively impact production and rail traffic flows. As an added countermeasure for ensuring that backlogged rail volume does not unnecessarily consume important resources and capacity, connecting carriers in the Eastern part of the country will limit interchange volume over the weekend. The need for this action will be reviewed daily and we will work with both CSX and Norfolk Southern (NS) to restore normal interchange traffic flows as soon as it is prudent to do so.

BNSF inland facility gate restrictions remain unchanged from those that were communicated yesterday, November 6, 2014.

In the interest of our customers, we are hopeful that the issues impacting our shared service are resolved soon to avoid further disruption.
