BNSF Carload: Independence Day 2024 Operating Plan

Jun 14, 2024

This year, the Independence Day holiday falls on Thursday, July 4. Train service will not be curtailed due to the holiday; however, BNSF plans to minimize the number of yard, local and road-switch assignments at terminals on Thursday, July 4, consistent with customer activity and volume demand. Connecting carriers who have reduced operations for the holiday may cause delays on interline traffic.

For interactive tracing 365 days a year, please use BNSF’s Tracing web tool by logging in to the BNSF Customer Portal with your username and password and selecting the Trace tab on the Home page.

Customer Support will maintain a limited staff on Independence Day. Regular coverage will resume on Friday, July 5.
