Effective Friday, February 22, BNSF will place additional gate restrictions at its LPC Intermodal and Automotive facilities to aid in continued service recovery efforts in response to recent extreme weather events.
LPC ingate restrictions/embargoes will be required for shipments as well as empty loads. The BNSF Sales Team will be contacting individual intermodal and automotive customers regarding specific gate restriction and embargo permitting plans to help prevent inventory-related production challenges.
Customers are encouraged to prioritize the pick-up of units that have been unloaded at LPC. Prompt pick-up will help improve traffic flows, reduce lot congestion and provide the space needed for processing inbound shipments as quickly as possible. We also encourage drivers to download and use BNSF Railway's mobile application, RailPASS, to receive real-time notifications, instructions and inventory updates that can help speed recovery.
If you have any questions regarding your shipment(s), please contact BNSF Customer Support at 1-888-428-2673.
