BNSF will hold the following Direct DET auctions next week. Each Direct DET is a four-month commitment.
The auction date and Direct DET starts are as follows:
Tuesday, August 16, 2022
November 2022 2 FP
November 2022 2 MP
Please note the recent rules tariff changes announced July 15, 2022: Direct DETs will now require a minimum commitment of three waybilled loaded trains. A cancellation notice must be provided within 45 days in advance of the startup period to avoid a cancellation penalty of $200 per car for the number of cars not waybilled against the three-train commitment.
Direct DET rules are published in BNSF 4022, Item 13505.
A calendar with deadlines for providing BNSF with a 45-day notice of intent to cancel is posted on the Agricultural Car Programs page.
If you have any questions, please email COTs@bnsf.com.
Your business is important to us. Thank you for choosing BNSF as your transportation service provider.
