BNSF Automotive: 2020 Independence Day Operating Plan

Jun 25, 2020

BNSF's Automotive 2020 Independence Day operating plan will remain focused on meeting customers' expectations while matching operations to any reductions in traffic volumes. This year, BNSF will recognize the Independence Day holiday on Friday, July 3 and Saturday, July 4, 2020.

BNSF will operate automotive trains over the Independence Day holiday. Some automotive facility gates will be closed on Saturday, July 4. Please see the attached facility schedule. 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 from Friday, July 3 through Monday, July 6 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. For service issues, please call 888-428-2673.

Customer Support will maintain a limited staff on Friday, July 3 and Saturday, July 4. Normal coverage will resume on Sunday, July 5.
