BNSF’s Automotive Independence Day operating plan will remain focused on meeting customers’ expectations while matching operations to rail volumes. This year, the Independence Day holiday falls on Monday, July 4.
BNSF will operate automotive trains over the Independence Day holiday and our automotive facilities will remain fully-staffed and open for haulaway during normal scheduled hours. Connecting carriers who have reduced operations for the holiday may cause delays on interline traffic. Due to lighter traffic volumes over the holiday, we anticipate some extending of our service schedules as we consolidate volumes to fill trains. We expect that shipments arriving on the holiday, Monday, July 4, may experience delays of up to 24 hours.
For interactive tracking 365 days a year, please use BNSF’s Tracking tool by logging in with your user name and password and selecting Track Your Shipment. If you have questions regarding a shipment(s), please utilize the Message Us feature on the BNSF Customer Portal (must be registered/logged in to access) or contact BNSF Customer Support at 1-888-428-2673.
Customer Support will maintain a limited staff on Independence Day. Normal coverage will resume on Tuesday, July 5.
Your business is important to us. Thank you again for choosing BNSF Railway as your transportation provider.
