Rail Gate Restrictions Disrupt Intermodal Service | J.B. Hunt

Train carrying intermodal freight

The rail network continues to recover from ongoing ramp congestion and car imbalances.  As a result of progress in Chicago, NS has further eased gate restrictions to and from its 47th Street ramp.  Unfortunately, after incurring a setback in Florida, NS has issued new gate restrictions from all origin points to Jacksonville.  Below is a summary of all rail gate restrictions currently impacting J.B. Hunt and its customers. These restrictions are expected to limit J.B. Hunt’s ability to pick up shipments through at least Tuesday, April 13.  

All Standard traffic will be impacted in these lanes:

  • NS Chicago 47th Street, IL to all destinations – Ingates restricted
  • All NS origin points to Chicago 47th Street, IL – Ingates restricted 
  • All NS origin points to Jacksonville, FL – Ingates restricted 

Considering the ongoing rail velocity slowdown, equipment imbalances, and gate restrictions, J.B. Hunt expects container availability will remain extremely constrained throughout the country for the next two weeks. Customers can help improve container availability by accepting deliveries within 24 hours of deramp and unloading dropped containers within 24 hours of arrival. With a vast network of service offerings, J.B. Hunt can provide highway solutions to mitigate these intermodal disruptions. A representative will communicate load specific delays, along with alternative routing options. 

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.
