On October 24, 2019 Norfolk Southern took action to reduce the time period in which empty shipments could ingate the Sharonville Intermodal Facility. The action was taken to reduce terminal congestion and to help restore fluid operations at the facility. Following the restriction, operational efficiencies have been realized and beginning tomorrow the empty ingate restriction is being revised as follows:
Effective Friday, November 8, 2019, empty shipments will only be permitted to ingate Sharonville between 2:00pm-6:00am Monday-Friday and from 6:00am-6:00pm on Saturday. Initially, empty ingates on Monday-Friday were restricted to the hours of 6:00pm-6:00am.
We encourage drivers to take advantage of our ExpressNSTM Mobile Application which streamlines gate and terminal processes for our drayage community. With ExpressNSTM, drivers can verify billing, submit pre-gate information, obtain parking and pickup locations, receive electronic interchange receipts, and submit bad order information.
