Buckingham Branch Freight Tariffs


Railroad freight rates are a complicated part of our business. The BB is a handling line railroad, which means that most often, our freight rates are submitted to either CSXT or Norfolk Southern, the Class 1 Railroads with whom we interchange the freight, and the BB rate becomes part of the overall rate submitted by the Class 1 Railroad to the customer. Some rates for standard commodities are fixed by the BB and published as part of our Public Tariffs. These rates are periodically reviewed and updated as needed.

For many of our customers, however, freight rates are calculated involving various factors, including the type of freight transported, the type of freight car used, whether the freight car is owned by a railroad, a private railcar company or the customer, the distance the freight will travel on the BB system, and other factors. Freight rates sometimes involve fuel surcharges as well. Our customer service staff are committed to finding the best solution at the most affordable price for existing and new freight customers.
