NSQ 9905 and NSQ 9906 Rate Adjustment Notification effective November 1, 2018

Oct 01, 2018

Dear Valued Customer:

In the world of woodchips, Norfolk Southern strives for competitiveness and full coverage in our real-time rating. Effective November 1, 2018, we take another step toward our goals with the publication of updated rates in NSQ 9905, which covers point to group rates, and NSQ 9906 which is mileage based.

The rates found in these authorities apply to woodchips (STCC 24-115-XX)

Other important items of note:

  • These rates are public and therefore are not subject to fuel surcharge.
  • As with all Norfolk Southern rate publications, the applicable terms and conditions are listed in the notes section of each authority.

The updated NSQ 9905 and NSQ 9906 is available in AccessNS now. We encourage you to register for AccessNS at, using one of us as a sponsor, and subscribe to both NSQ 9905 and 9906 to receive up-to-date changes as they are available.

If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the forest products marketing team or your sales person.  We at Norfolk Southern appreciate your business and look forward to continuing to serve your transportation needs.
