Dear Intermodal Customer,

The Chicago metropolitan area received record rainfall yesterday and is expecting similar amounts of rain today.  The UPRR Global 2 intermodal terminal currently is inaccessible due to road flooding and other blockages.   Due to inaccessibility of the terminal, UPRR will offer yesterday and today (Apr 17 and 18) as free days for storage purposes.  UPRR will monitor the situation going forward and as appropriate will notify of any additional free time to be offered.
All other UPRR terminals in the Chicago metropolitan area are open for business.  

UPRR sincerely apologizes for the service issues and will work round the clock to minimize the delays.
