Dear Intermodal Customer,

     UPRR continues to improve its facilities by implementing new and advanced technologies designed to increase efficiencies and improve driver turn times. In the upcoming months we will be replacing our Automated Gate System (AGS) technology with a new AGS system at Global 1. During construction, our terminals will have a 6-8 week period where the gates will be operated manually with personnel in the lanes with hand held devices. Drivers may experience slightly longer gate processing times during this period.

     To ensure a smooth cutover, we need your assistance over the next several weeks. We will need all drivers to pre-register with the new system. Drivers can do this by stopping into the help office during the manual gate operations period and register. This needs to be done once in the 6-8 week period. If drivers do not pre-register, they will be unable to process through the new AGS system and will experience delays when our system is activated. Drivers will need their drivers license and SCAC code to register.

Global 1 pre-registration will begin Monday, April 29, 2013. Please be sure to have your drivers pre-register for the new system as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation
