11 Rail 101 Points to Note: Scheduled placement is generally conservative
Designed to ensure availability by listed time If no appointment is made prior to grounding the import will be moved off-site To ensure import remains at Brampton do not wait until day of placement to make appointment Appointment may be made when import dispays ETA Reconfirm after pad availability is displayed An alert will be sent to the registered address if pad availability precludes appointment from being fulfilled Certain circumstances may prevent an import being available immediately at scheduled pad placement. To prevent a dead run: Monitor actual pad availability when scheduling tight Plan pick up for the free day - 11 -

12 Rail 101 Considerations: If CN has not provided a scheduled pad availability by noon the day before, the import will continue to have two free days Storage clock will begin with the later of scheduled pad availability or actual availability If an appointment cannot be fulfilled due to rescheduling/late pad placement the import will continue to have two free days - 12 -

13 Rail 101 Storage: Any party that will guarantee storage should be set up to do so on line At the present time, storage may only be guaranteed once the container grounds - 13 -
