BNSF Issues Embargo for All Automotive Facilities

Mar 23, 2020

Due to the quickly developing circumstances related to COVID-19, BNSF issued an embargo for all Automotive Facilities over the weekend. This embargo will impact traffic flows in and out of BNSF's 23 Automotive Facilities.

During the permit embargo period, BNSF will work with customers to coordinate anticipated permit needs. Specifically, we are asking for your help in identifying specific dealers, which are no longer receiving product at each destination facility. Additionally, we are asking that you let us know if you have secured off-site parking as well as the status of haulaway options.
