Rate Increase Announcement
August 12, 2014
Effective August 18th, Buckeye Intermodal will implement rate increases for Midwest region drayage services to and from the east coast piers (New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia, and Norfolk). These increases apply to containers trucked to and from piers; they do not apply to containers trucked to and from Cleveland rail terminals.
As I have reported in the past, the operating environment at the pier terminals has changed. The cost to serve has steadily increased, forcing many companies to discontinue long-haul service at the piers.
These increases will allow us to continue providing dependable and flexible service for your expedited, high value, or time sensitive commodities. We specialize in providing one way transportation service for intermodal containers to and from the east coast piers, including our fleet of anysizer chassis and multi-state overweight permits.
Spot rate quotes given prior to this notice will be honored for 30 days. If you have any questions regarding these rate increases, please call our office at (216) 287-7807.
