BNSF Intermodal: 2021 Memorial Day Operating Plan

May 20, 2021

BNSF’s Intermodal Memorial Day operating plan will remain focused on meeting customers’ expectations while matching operations to rail volumes. This year, the Memorial Day holiday falls on Monday, May 31.

BNSF will continue to operate Intermodal trains over the Memorial Day holiday. However, due to lighter volumes of traffic and possible train consolidations, we anticipate that shipments from Saturday, May 29 through noon on Tuesday, June 1 may experience delays of up to 24 hours. Connecting carriers who have reduced operations for the holiday may cause delays on interline traffic.

Please see the attached matrix for all hub hours during the holiday period.

For interactive tracking 365 days a year, please use BNSF’s Tracking tool by logging in with your user name and password and selecting Track Your Shipment. For service issues, please call 888-428-2673.

Customer Support will maintain a limited staff on Memorial Day. Normal coverage will resume on Tuesday, June 1.

Your business is important to us. Thank you again for choosing BNSF Railway as your transportation provider.
