As part of ongoing efforts to increase productivity and intermodal hub fluidity, BNSF is offering a storage credit of up to $1,000 for any international containers bearing storage charges outgated at BNSF Alliance Intermodal Facility between August 29th and September 5th.
Any international container currently dwelling beyond free time is eligible for this storage credit. Customers need to guarantee storage before outgate to receive the storage credit. A credit of up to $1,000 will be applied to the final storage bill through the standard storage guarantee process. The credit is only applicable for containers at the Alliance Intermodal Facility Main Yard. BNSF has multiple tools available for customers to track their shipments.
As previously announced, BNSF has taken several steps to improve productivity at our Alliance Intermodal Facility, including repositioning Cantilever Rubber Tire Gantry Cranes to improve access to units stacked due to chassis shortage. This storage credit is designed to support these efforts to encourage and expedite outgate of international containers ahead of Labor Day.
As always, your business is important to us. Thank you for choosing BNSF as your transportation provider.
