The nation’s two largest railroad companies, BNSF Railway Company and CSX Intermodal recently expanded their current intermodal container service to include several new locations in the Southeast.
BNSF and CSXI will now serve Charleston, S.C.; Savannah, Ga.; and Miami, Orlando and Tampa, Fla., in addition to current eastern hubs at Atlanta, Ga.; Jacksonville, Fla.; and Charlotte, N.C.
“BNSF and CSX expanded their original program because it proved to be very successful for both us and shippers,” said Steve Branscum, group vice president, Consumer Products. “Our combined service is competitive with highway carriers, saves shippers money and reduces fuel consumption for moving freight. From our new and existing hubs, goods can easily move to destinations throughout the Southeast.”
This expanded service builds upon a 2006 agreement between BNSF and CSXI to provide improved service to customers for shipments between the West Coast, Atlanta and other Southeast destinations.
