To: All Valued Customers,

A recent and rapid increase in domestic and expedited intermodal volumes out of Southern California along with the challenges restoring labor availability to pre Covid-19 levels resulting in severe ramp congestion at BNSF's Los Angeles, and Commerce, CA facilities.

BNSF has also implemented ingate restrictions to limit the in-gate activity for every lane. In addition, the rail reservation system takes longer than usual to secure. Therefore, these closures and limitations have impacted delay on almost all IPI shipment and are expected to impact all IPI transit times. We are working diligently with both Rail and OTR to expedite our loads. Please be sure to check or track your cargo status online for latest status of your shipment. We value your business and appreciate your support. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
