Intermodal Customers

MOL is making available to all intermodal customers the option of taking delivery of import shipments at Dallas, instead of Houston. This option is available at no additional charge resulting solely from the change in place of delivery, and remains in effect until conditions return to normal, or until further notice, whichever occurs first.

 

While MOL will provide additional general updates as needed, impacted customers will be contacted directly. If you have any questions, please contact your MOL sales or customer service representative. As always, we appreciate your business.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

MOL (America) Inc.
