Rossville International Intermodal Optimized Stack Operations and Appointment System

Atlanta, GA - Apr 27, 2023

On April 19th and 20th NS hosted a series of local drayage town halls to raise awareness that over the course of the next month significant changes in operations will take place at the NS Rossville Intermodal terminal to optimize stack operations at the facility. One key component of these changes is the brand-new appointment system designed to streamline international container pickup and drop off.

Beginning May 3rd drivers with international traffic will be required to make an appointment to enter the Rossville facility. The appointment system, developed in partnership with Blume Global, will require signup via the Blume registration website prior to utilizing the platform. This site can be accessed at the link below:
