BNSF Automotive: Memorial Day Operating Plan

May 10, 2023

BNSF’s Automotive Memorial Day operating plan will remain focused on meeting customers’ expectations while matching operations to rail volumes. This year, the Memorial Day holiday falls on Monday, May 29.

BNSF will operate automotive trains over the Memorial 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, May 29, 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 username 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 Memorial Day. Normal coverage will resume Tuesday, May 30.
