Rail Gate Restrictions Disrupt Intermodal Service
The rail network continues to work through ongoing ramp congestion, labor challenges and car imbalances. As a result of progress in Southern California, BNSF has eased gate restrictions, allowing normal ingate volume in Los Angeles. Although the network remains in a fragile state, J.B. Hunt is not currently being impacted by gate restrictions at any ramp.
Considering the ongoing rail velocity slowdown and customer unloading challenges, J.B. Hunt expects container availability will remain extremely constrained throughout the country. Customers can help improve container availability by accepting deliveries within 24 hours of deramp and unloading dropped containers within 24 hours of arrival.
Customer service is extremely important to J.B. Hunt, and we apologize for the inconvenience these service interruptions have caused.
