End of Daylight Savings in Mexico and the US -2017

October 27, 2017

As a courtesy notice we would like to alert you that at 2 a.m. on Sunday, October 29th, 2017, Daylight Savings Time in Mexico ends.* In the United States, including the borders of Nuevo Laredo and Matamoros, Daylight Savings ends one week later on November 5th, 2017.

During this week, there will be a one-hour time difference between Central time in Mexico and Central Standard Time in the US. From October 29th through November 5th, the cutoff time for scheduling freight and releases will be one hour earlier in Mexico. Additionally, MyKCS, our customer portal, will be transacting using Central Standard Time of the US.

Please note that cutoff times related to demurrage, yards and trains will not be impacted by this one hour difference for this single week.

We hope you find this notice useful in planning your cross-border transit. Should you have any questions on this, please do not hesitate to contact our KCSM Customer Solutions team who can assist you.

Thank you for being a loyal Kansas City Southern customer and we look forward to continuing to serve you.
