Hazardous Auto-Reverse Program

The Hazardous Auto-Reverse (HAR) Program automatically generates shipping instructions for empty hazmat cars that are returning back to their origin. When you submit a pull request for an empty hazmat car, HAR generates empty-return shipping instructions for moving the car. Confirmation is automatically faxed to you.

To participate, review the HAR Authorization (PDF), print and complete it and fax it to 904-332-7144. You will be notified when authorization is complete.
