Lumber-Panel LOGs Centerbeam and Boxcar Equipment Requests

Feb 28, 2022

Based on equipment availability, BNSF is temporarily reducing the weekly ordering flex to +0% and reducing the minimum flex increase from one to zero for all Loading Origin Guarantees Program (LOGs) permits for 81-, 73- and 60-foot centerbeams and 60- and 52-foot plate F boxcars, effective Friday, February 18, 2022. BNSF will reinstate the +10% flex and will send an announcement when availability improves. Additionally, for centerbeams, unfilled orders that have Want Dates in the past will not be filled (please note: a shortfall penalty will not be assessed on these unfilled orders and LOGs claims can be filed on those orders).

For information about the various LOGs applications and how to use the program, please review the LOGs quick reference guide
