Intermodal Storage (Dwell) Policy Update for Domestic Shippers

Nov 2, 2020

Effective Monday, December 1, 2020, BNSF will make the following adjustment to its Intermodal Storage Policy: Domestic containers and trailers arriving at BNSF’s Alliance Intermodal Facility will receive 24 hours of free time (Group 1) following their day of notification. This change will improve facility efficiency and free up additional capacity. The specific policy update is reflected in Item 37 and Appendix F: of the BNSF Intermodal Rules and Policies Guide (R&PG).

Storage information, including the last free day, may also be found on BNSF’s web tools including Track Your Shipment, Display Intermodal Lot Location, RailPASS and the At Destination widget. BNSF Intermodal customers with a user ID will be able to access these tools by clicking on the Dashboard tab at the top of the customer portal.

For additional information, please contact your BNSF marketing representative.
