BNSF Carload: 2018 Independence Day Operating Plan

Jun 18, 2018

BNSF's Carload 2018 Independence Day operating plan will remain focused on meeting customers' expectations while matching operations to any reductions in traffic volumes. This year, the Independence Day holiday falls on Wednesday, July 4.

Trains will operate normally on Tuesday, July 3. BNSF plans to minimize the number of yard, local and road-switch assignments at terminals on Wednesday, July 4, resuming normal operations at 6:30 a.m. local time on Thursday, July 5. Connecting carriers who have reduced operations for the holiday may cause delays on interline traffic.

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 and select option 4, then option 3.

Customer Support will maintain a limited staff on Independence Day. Standard coverage will resume on Thursday, July 5.
