Congestion Prompts NS to Limit Inbound Intermodal Loads at Some Terminals

Norfolk Southern is limiting inbound loads at some of its busiest intermodal terminals due to congestion.

The affected terminals include loads moving between Chicago 63rd Street and Pittsburgh; and Toledo and Buffalo, New York.

In a service advisory NS said the Chicago 63rd Intermodal facility would remain open during the ingate closures and it urged customers to remove equipment from the facility in order to increase parking capacity.

The move came as NS and other Class 1 railroads have experienced sharply increased intermodal volumes in recent months.

NS has seen its overall intermodal traffic rise by 4.2 percent in the fourth quarter to date.

BNSF has also announced limits on inbound loads at some of its terminals.
