In order to manage traffic flows to match announced holiday hours at ports, ingates at NS origin terminals will temporarily close to international containers. The duration of the ingate closures will match hours at ports. Ingates will reopen in alignment with when traffic can meet availability to arrive at ports upon the ports post-holiday reopening.
The attached document provides the specific ingate closure hours at NS origin terminals in both matrix and lane listing formats.
Ingate closures will only apply for the lane specified, and containers billed to other destinations will still be allowed to ingate during noted hours.
