Use this page to create new Rule 11 route codes or to change existing ones. Rule 11 route codes specify the legs of Rule 11 rail shipments. Rule 11 shipments are multi-leg, multi-carrier rail buy shipments in which the carriers bill independently for their charges and only the first leg is tendered (as if the shipment was moving on a through rate). Thus Rule 11 shipments consist of a tendered first leg and one or more non-tendered subsequent legs. This page is accessed via Contract and Rate Management > Power Data > Rates and Codes.
The number and sequence of legs in a Rule 11 shipment are specified by its Rule 11 route code, which references the rail route codes of each leg.
Rule 11 shipments can be part of a larger multi-leg shipment. For example, a shipment could begin with a truck load leg, then have a three-leg Rule 11 sequence, and end with another truck load leg.
After identifying a Rule 11 Route Code ID, perform one or more of the following:
To add a leg to the Rule 11 shipment, enter a Sequence number, and then enter or find its Route Code ID.
To change the sequence of an existing leg, click the Edit icon next to it, and then type a new Sequence number.
To delete a leg, click Delete next to it.
The first leg of a Rule 11 shipment is the only tendered leg.
