Rail Gate Restrictions Disrupt Intermodal Service

The rail network continues to work through ongoing ramp congestion, labor challenges and car imbalances. With progress in New Jersey, NS has lifted all gate restrictions to its Croxton, NJ ramp. However, effective immediately, NS has implemented new and severe gate restrictions from its Chicago/47th Steet ramp to Mechanicville/Albany, NY and Ayer, MA. Gate restrictions from NS’s Chicago/47th Street ramp to all other destinations have been eased, allowing for the pickup and ingate of normal volumes. Below is a summary of current rail gate restrictions impacting J.B. Hunt and its customers.

Current gate restrictions — Standard traffic will be impacted in these lanes:

  • Chicago/47th Street, IL to Mechanicville/Albany, NY
  • Chicago/47th Street, IL to Ayer, MA

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.
