Lifted Today: Permit Embargo for FXE Eagle Pass and El Paso Interchanges

Nov 1, 2018

With the onset of FXE removing their two train a day restriction this week, the permit embargo that was recently activated by BNSF has been lifted. This permit embargo, a temporary hold to restrict the acceptance and handling of freight, was applied to distillers grain (DDG), wheat, soybean, soybean meal, corn, and corn syrup shipments destined to the FXE at these junctions due to the recent congestion at the FXE Eagle Pass and El Paso, TX interchanges.

We will continue to monitor the deliveries at both gateways to ensure actual unit grain interchanges improve as expected.

If you have questions about your shipment(s), please contact BNSF Customer Support at 1-888-428-2673.
