Union Pacific recently experienced an incident where a container loaded with a steel coil product experienced a floor failure resulting in serious damage.
As a reminder to all shippers moving metal products in intermodal units, please refer to Item 540-D in Union Pacific's Master Intermodal Transportation Agreement (MITA 2-A). Metal Products shipped in intermodal containers are a restricted commodity and require "a special AGREEMENT TO SHIP METAL PRODUCTS IN INTERMODAL UNITS WITH UPRR".
These commodities require a Signed Agreement between Union Pacific and the shipper of record as noted in Item 540-D.
Failure to comply will result in a $10,000 charge for each intermodal unit shipped, in addition to all costs incurred as a result of container failure during transit.
We appreciate your attention to this very important matter. Safety is our number one priority.
