Dear Valued KCS Intermodal Customer,

During the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, KCS elected to adjust the EMP and TMXU per diem scales. Effective July 13, 2020, the per diem scale will return to that prior to the COVID-19 adjustments.

Current Per Diem Scale: March 16, 2020 – July 12, 2020:

Days 1-20:

$20 per day

Days 21–30:

$30 per day

Days 31 and greater:

$100 per day


Adjusted Per Diem Scale*: effective July 13, 2020:

Days 1-5:

$20 per day

Days 6-10:

$30 per day

Days 11-20:

$50 per day

Days 21 and greater:

$200 per day


*Same scale as Jan 1, 2019 to March 15, 2020

For clarity, the TMXU pickup charge remains waived until further notice.

Both the EMP and TMX charges are assessed by Blume Global on behalf of KCS therefore these details will be located under Policies and Procedures on the Blume Global site, after logging in with your Blume Global credentials.

Please contact your KCS Sales Representative or Marketing Representative with any questions.

Thank you for being a loyal Kansas City Southern Intermodal customer.
