BNSF Initiates New Off-site Dray Program

Apr 29, 2021

As previously announced, BNSF has initiated its off-site dray program to reduce the impact of long-dwelling International units at its Alliance Intermodal Facility serving the Dallas-Fort Worth region. This program is intended to generate additional parking capacity at our main intermodal yards while providing our customers a more efficient alternative for units that may dwell well beyond facility free time. BNSF will be extending the off-site dray program at its Logistics Park Chicago, Memphis and Logistics Park Kansas City Intermodal Facilities in the coming weeks.

Any shipment moved to an off-site lot will remain visible in BNSF inventory, including through our web tools and BNSF’s RailPASS Application. BNSF will continue to assess and collect storage charges on shipments that have been moved to off-site yards and for excessively dwelling units. In addition, we may ground these units at the off-site locations to generate greater chassis availability for the continued flow of containers.

The Alliance off-site lot entrance is located at ITS ConGlobal, 1198 Intermodal Parkway Haslet, Texas 76052. Shipments arriving at this lot will be identified on notifications as being at ALLNYD. For questions, please contact on-site support:

Jason Simonson
Director of Operations
