"Our Missoula location is primarily rail served and because we can only unload one car at a time our rail spur presents a challenge for MRL. All we have to do is call MRL and the job gets done." -Corey Skeers, Manager GTS Interior Supply

Seal Information

A barrier seal is used to prevent unauthorized access to your lading.   As stated in Item 2250-D, the customer has the responsibility to protect the safety and integrity of its lading, including the application of barrier seals. 

Montana Rail Link (MRL) does not provide barrier seals to our customers in order to be in compliance with BNSF’s rule governing Barrier Seal Application and the established prerequisites for claiming rail carrier responsibility/liability for lading damage/loss due to seal exception. 

MRL will not participate or be party to claims for lading loss or damage as stated in Item 2250-D of BNSF Rule Book 6100-A.  

MRL and BNSF Railway do not require or recommend any particular brand of seal or manufacturer, and there are many manufacturers available to you for the purchase of seals. Some examples of seal manufacturers are:
