trucks, and street-sweeper trucks.
A. Payload Issues:
1. We always want to transload the maximum weight into a 20FT or 40FT container.
2. Base on California highway limits maximum payload is between 40,000 to 48,000.
3. Maximum payload for 20FT is 40,000, 20FT with triaxle is 48,000, 40FT is 48,000.
4. Ocean freight on 20FT is usually 75% of the cost of a 40FT container.
5. What is optimum size container to load based upon rates and payload?
6. Can steamship line(s) provide enough 20FT/triaxle chassis on a consistent basis?
B. Railroad Issues:
1. The Borden facility is serviced by the UPRR and the track is consider closed to BNSF.
2. If BNSF rail is used then there is a switch/interchange cost to move cars to the UP track. If UP is used exclusive then there are no switch/interchange costs.
3. Is BNSF your preferred rail carrier over the UPRR?
4. Who is your account representative at BNSF and/or UPRR?
5. Rail volumes should be consistent and on a fluid schedule as much as possible.
6. Will there be a plan or schedule in place to forecast inbound rail car volumes?
C. Operational Issues:
1. Do we need a USDA person on site for inspection of soybean for pests/insects?
2. Do we need to scale each container before & after to obtain product exact weight?
3. Is it possible for us to visit the current site where the transloading is done today?
4. Can you provide details on the current auger system that is being used?
5. What weekly volume amounts are you looking to handle on the West Coast?
6. What is expected cycle time (turn-around time) for transloading railcars?
D. Pricing Issues:
1. How does pricing differences between BNSF and UPRR effect using BTI?
2. What are the rail costs for transport from Chicago to Los Angeles?
3. If we use 20FT/triaxle chassis combination – will carrier supply at no extra cost?
4. Does the difference in ocean freight costs make a 20FT more advantageous?
5. What are the ocean freight costs for 20FT and 40FT?
6. Is the transloading rate of $20 per ton a firm and built in cost for Honor Grain?
E. Next Issues:
1. What is the target date/timeframe to start on the West Coast?
2. Are you willing to sign an agreement to a long term volume commitment?
3. What are your requirements from Borden Logistics in order to start business?
