Pacific Northwest Marine Terminal Update

The labor issue affecting the ports in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) did not improve over the weekend. If lower than normal production levels continue, it may be necessary for BNSF to expand gate restrictions.

Current gate restrictions remain unchanged and cover originating shipments for Tacoma at Logistics Park Chicago (LPC), Cicero and St. Paul. Also, connecting carriers in the East continue to limit interchange.

We will keep monitoring this situation and look forward to quick resolution, so that service to and from the Pacific Northwest can be fully restored.
