Historic Winter Weather Disrupts Intermodal Service 030121
The intermodal network continues to recover from the historic winter weather. With this weekend’s progress, the BNSF has lifted all gate restrictions effective immediately. Although all BNSF and NS gate restrictions are now lifted, the backlog of pickups will take several days to process. In addition, container availability throughout the country remains disrupted from the rail velocity slowdown and recent gate restrictions. However, J.B. Hunt anticipates a full network recovery by mid-March when container balance and supply are expected to return to a normal state. In the interim, with a vast network of service offerings, J.B. Hunt can provide highway solutions to mitigate any intermodal capacity disruption.
J.B. Hunt will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they become available. Customer service is extremely important to J.B. Hunt, and we apologize for the inconvenience these service interruptions have caused.
