CSX Intermodal Terminals, Inc. and EMH&T have won the American Council of Engineering Companies of Ohio 2012 Engineering Excellence Outstanding Achievement Award for the design of the CSX unit's Northwest Ohio intermodal terminal.

CSX said it worked closely with EMH&T to develop a facility with "cutting-edge technologies and green design, including ultra-efficient electric cranes that lower emissions, optical scanners that reduce truck idling times, and automated car tracking technologies and remote switches that increase operational efficiency."

Columbus, Ohio-based EMH&T is an engineering and consulting firm heavily involved in public works projects.
