CSX’s Commitment to You:
To be the safest, most progressive North American railroad, relentless in the pursuit of customer and employee excellence.
Whether you’re looking for the support of an asset provider or the utilization of your own equipment, CSX Transportation (CSXT) provides the intermodal solutions your company needs. No matter how many loads you have, CSXT has the scalable capacity to move your freight.
CSXT has been expanding intermodal service aggressively in lanes with shorter lengths of haul to provide cost and sustainability alternatives to shippers who move freight extensively into and across the Eastern United States to reach dense population markets. To make these shorter distances work intermodally, CSXT has pioneered the hub-and-spoke network in the railroad space, which creates the most connectivity and offers the most intermodal lanes in the Eastern United States. It is built around the state-of-the-art Northwest Ohio hub facility.
To support future growth and freight demands, CSX Intermodal Terminals, Inc. has invested aggressively in new facilities such as Northwest Ohio, expanding and improving capacity at existing terminals, as well as making available an ever-larger container fleet for use by transportation carriers on behalf of shippers.
For example, construction recently commenced on CSX affiliate Evansville Western Railway’s new, high-efficiency intermodal facility in Winter Haven, Florida, to serve the growing Central Florida market with the most service offerings and freight capacity available by rail; the facility will be operational in 2014. In addition, a large construction project in Columbus, Ohio, will be completed in mid-2013 and expansion projects in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Worcester, Massachusetts, were recently completed, effectively doubling the throughput freight capacity of each of these terminals.
These enhanced facilities enable operations to be performed more quickly, in a more automated fashion and in a more environmentally responsible way than ever before – all of which benefit customers and users of intermodal rail.
As a result of customer-driven investments, CSXT anticipates aggressive highway to intermodal rail (H2R) conversion by shippers looking to take greater advantage of the Value of Intermodal Rail. Intermodal rail offers shippers:
