Effective October 1, 2014, Union Pacific will amend Item 510 "General Loading Requirements" of their 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:
The Heavy Weight Surcharges will apply to all Westbound Containers that meet the weight thresholds.
Should RBC receive a bill from UP on the heavy weight surcharge, RBC will rebill the IMC for this charge plus an administrative fee.
