Notification Day
The event used to determine the day of notification will continue to be either the Patron Notification (PN) or Estimated Time of Notification (ETN), whichever occurs at the later date and time. The Day of Notification will now be the day in which this later event occurs, regardless of the time of day that it occurs.

If shipment availability is prior to ISP, then the ISP date will be the day of notification regardless of ETN. If shipment availability is after the ISP date, then standard BNSF storage rules will apply.
