by Union Pacific
Posted: Friday, October 20, 2017 at 9:17AM EDT

Here we grow again! 

Union Pacific Cold Connect will be adding departure days on all eastbound California and Washington trains -- effective Tuesday, October 31, 2017.

We will begin originating trains Tuesday through Saturday, departing at 9:00 PDT, with 7th and 8th day availability in the Northeast. Priority handling will be reserved for committed customers first. 

With additional train starts, we will continue with our current arrival cutoffs as follows:


  • All loads must be received into the Cold Connect terminals at Delano, California, and Wallula, Washington, by 22:00 PDT the evening prior to train departure. Any loads arriving after 22:00 PDT may be rescheduled to the next available train.
  • Load tenders must be received 24 hours in advance of pick-up appointment.
  • A minimum of 24 hours lead-time is required for all full-truckload orders shipping out of Rotterdam, New York for final delivery. This includes changes to any existing sales order.
  • All less-than-truckload orders will require 48 hours notice to ensure truck availability.

Schedules on westbound Cold Connect trains departing Rotterdam, New York, are not impacted by this newly expanded service.

Thank you for shipping with Union Pacific Cold Connect. We appreciate your business and are dedicated to providing you with valuable, competitive transportation services for all of your food and beverage shipments.
