Temporary Ingate Closures for Service Into and Out of Chicago 63rd – Update

Dec 18, 2020


As an update to the Chicago 63rd ingate closures announced on the customer advisory published on December 14th, the status of the terminal continues to improve. 

As a result, effective immediately, ingates to all shipments in the following lanes have reopened: 

  • Chicago 63rd <> Buffalo
  • Chicago 63rd <> Pittsburgh
  • Chicago 63rd to Toledo (billed interline received only)

We will continue to evaluate the markets below. However, ingates to all shipments remain closed in the following lanes:

  • Chicago 63rd <> Croxton
  • Chicago 63rd <> Rutherford
  • Chicago 63rd <> Toledo (local & interline forwarded)

The Chicago 63rd Intermodal facility has remained open, and we encourage customers to outgate equipment from the facility in order to increase parking capacity.
