New Lot 6 at Memphis for Shipment Pick Up Only - Effective August 7, 2006

Effective August 7, 2006, a new lot—Lot 6--will open at Memphis for pick up of loaded trailer, or container shipments only. The customer notification will reflect the lot location of the loaded equipment when customers trace their shipments. This lot will add capacity for the Memphis facility, and is part of the overall expansion plan for Memphis.

Customers will bobtail into Lot 6 and pick up their shipments. Lot 6 will have a checkpoint, so customers will be able to out-gate their shipments at Lot 6. The checkpoint and Lot 6 will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Access is off of Lamar Avenue at Pleasant Hill Road. Please see the attached map to determine the location of this lot in relation to the Memphis Intermodal Facility.

No loaded or empty equipment will be allowed to come in-gate at this location. Customers should continue to in-gate shipments at the Shelby Drive checkpoint as usual.

Questions regarding the new lot should be directed to the Hub Manager on Duty at Memphis at 901-433-7460.
