BNSF has extended its off-site dray program at its Logistics Park Chicago Intermodal Facility as part of our ongoing efforts to provide our customers a more efficient alternative for units that may dwell well beyond facility free time. As previously announced, the program is intended to generate additional parking capacity at our main intermodal yards while reducing the impact of long-dwelling International units on hub operations and overall supply chain efficiency.
Any shipment moved to an off-site lot will remain visible in BNSF’s inventory through customer web tools and our RailPASS Mobile Application. BNSF will continue to assess and collect storage charges on shipments that have been moved to off-site yards and for excessively dwelling units. In addition, we may ground these units at the off-site locations to generate greater chassis availability for the continued flow of containers.
The LPC off-site lot entrance is located at 3201 Centerpoint Way, Joliet, IL 60436. Shipments arriving at this lot will be identified on notifications as being at ITSCONJOL. Units will be ground stacked which will require drivers to bring their own chassis. For questions, please contact on-site support at the following email: email@example.com.
Operating Hours at the ITS ConGlobal Joliet Depot are detailed below:
Monday thru Friday 6am – 10pm
Saturday 7am – 330pm
Yard is open 24/7 for wheeled parking
As a reminder, storage information, including the last free day, is available via BNSF’s web tools. BNSF Intermodal customers with a BNSF.com user ID can access these tools by clicking on the Dashboard tab at the top of the BNSF.com Customer Portal.
As always, we thank you for your business and appreciate the opportunity to serve as your transportation provider.
