The new service will provide reliable, truck competitive fourth (4th) morning transportation 6 days per week westbound and 5 days per week eastbound. This new premium service will be in addition to current service now in place between Chicago (Global 2), IL and Portland (Brooklyn), OR.
Schedules for this new service are as detailed in the attached PDF document. Customers should contact their Union Pacific representative for pricing. Union Pacific will support billing and in-gating freight 2 days prior to start of the new service (May 6, 2014).
Adding these new trains required minor adjustments to other service schedules. Updated Schedules are provided in the attached PDF document - all adjustments have been highlighted for your ready reference.
