Rail Gate Restrictions Disrupt Intermodal Service

The rail network continues to work through ongoing ramp congestion, labor challenges and equipment imbalances. With progress in Chicago, CSX has reopened the gates at all origin points for shipments to its Bedford Park ramp. However, due to severe ramp congestion, BNSF has implemented significant gate restrictions on shipments from its Chicago/Corwith, IL, ramp to all destinations. Below is a summary of current rail gate closures and restrictions impacting J.B. Hunt and its customers. 

Current gate closures:

  • All NS origin points to Jacksonville, FL

Current gate restrictions:

  • BNSF Chicago/Corwith, IL, to all destinations
  • NS Chicago/Calumet, IL, to Atlanta/Austell, GA
  • NS Chicago/Calumet, IL, to Charlotte, NC
  • NS 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.
