Rail Gate Restrictions Disrupt Intermodal Service
The intermodal network continues to work through ongoing volume and operational challenges. To expedite the recovery and restore ramp fluidity, BNSF, NS and CSX have implemented new gate restrictions effective immediately. Below is a summary of current rail gate restrictions 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, August 17.
All Standard traffic will be impacted in these lanes:
- BNSF Chicago/Cicero to all destinations
- BNSF Chicago/Corwith to all destinations
- CSX Chicago/Bedford Park to all destinations (except for Syracuse, NY; North Bergen, NJ; Springfield, MA; and Worcester, MA)
- All NS origin points to Jacksonville, FL
- NS Kansas City, MO to Croxton, NJ
Customers can help improve network fluidity 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.
