Effective October 1, 2014, Union Pacific will amend Item 510 “General Loading Requirements” of its MITA Governing Rules Circular. The amendment is designed to allow Union Pacific to efficiently and safely transport doubled-stacked intermodal containers.
The amendment will revise Item 510 to include the following Heavy Weight Surcharges:
- • $300 per Container for 40’/45’ ISO Westbound Containers that have a lading weight above 26 net tons
- • $200 per Container for 20’ ISO Westbound Containers that have a lading weight above 22 net tons
The Heavy Weight Surcharges will apply to all Westbound Containers that meet the weight thresholds.
We appreciate your attention to this change. Please contact your Union Pacific representative if you have any questions.
