Intermodal Storage free time and charges apply to equipment held at a BNSF facility from notification to out gate. Notification occurs when BNSF advises the notify party that the equipment is available. Storage charges begin accruing when free time expires. BNSF facilities are tiered into three groups with specific free times and daily storage charges.
