BNSF Automotive: 2021 Independence Day Operating Plan

Date
Jun 17, 2021

TRAIN SERVICE
BNSF’s Automotive Independence Day operating plan will remain focused on meeting customers’ expectations while matching operations to rail volumes. This year, BNSF will observe the Independence Day holiday on Sunday, July 4 and Monday, July 5.

BNSF will operate automotive trains over the Independence Day holiday and our automotive facilities will remain fully-staffed and open for haulaway 24/7. 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, Sunday, July 4, may experience delays of up to 24 hours.
