Upcoming Direct DET Auctions - Tuesday, August 16, 2022

Aug 12, 2022

BNSF will hold the following Direct DET auctions next week. Each Direct DET is a four-month commitment.

The auction date and Direct DET starts are as follows:

     Tuesday, August 16, 2022

     November 2022      2 FP
     November 2022      2 MP

Please note the recent rules tariff changes announced July 15, 2022: Direct DETs will now require a minimum commitment of three waybilled loaded trains. A cancellation notice must be provided within 45 days in advance of the startup period to avoid a cancellation penalty of $200 per car for the number of cars not waybilled against the three-train commitment.

Direct DET rules are published in BNSF 4022, Item 13505.

A calendar with deadlines for providing BNSF with a 45-day notice of intent to cancel is posted on the Agricultural Car Programs page.

If you have any questions, please email COTs@bnsf.com.
