BNSF Intermodal Rules and Policies Guide Update

Jun 20, 2024

The BNSF Intermodal Rules & Policies Guide has been moved to our Customer Portal. The Intermodal Rules & Policies Guide, as well as other policies and rules for credit and collections, shipping, service, equipment, liability, storage, drayage and more, can be found in the Rules and Publications section.

Effective Monday, July 22, 2024, BNSF will be adjusting loading requirements for all vehicles, including oversized and dually trucks, to follow the Association of American Railroads (AAR) loading procedures and special loading procedures for dual-wheel units.

The changes noted above will be reflected in Item 17 of the BNSF Intermodal Rules and Policies Guide prior to implementation date.

For additional information and any questions, please contact your BNSF marketing representative, utilize the Message Us feature on the Customer Portal (must be registered/logged in to access) or contact BNSF Customer Support at 1-888-428-2673.

As always, we thank you for your business and appreciate the opportunity to serve as your transportation service provider.
