BNSF Surcharge

To our Valued Clients:

As you may have heard watching the local news over the past couple of years the Burlington Northern – Santa Fe (BNSF) is moving to the new BNSF Logistics Park in Gardner, KS.  As with the CSX rail move previously here in Kansas City, the draymen delivering your full containers have created a new rate structure for this location, which is out of the way.  This new rate structure (i.e., BNSF Surcharge) will take place effective Sept 30, 2013 as containers start to be directed to the new BNSF Rail Ramp.  Please note, depending on the final delivery location of your cargo, there may be additional BNSF surcharges on your full container delivery. As always, Scarbrough is contacting our clients whom are directly affected by this move to ensure your cargo needs are being met.
