CSX Transportation launches new Intermodal website

Written by  William C. Vantuono, Editor-in-Chief

“CSX's expansive intermodal service provides businesses with a way to meet evolving supply chain requirements economically, while also promoting environmental sustainability,” said CSX Transportation Vice President Intermodal Bill Clement. “We’re pleased to introduce our new intermodal website, which will help new and existing customers learn about our robust offerings in an engaging way.”

“Intermodal transportation relies on a combination of rail, ocean vessels, and trucks to move containerized freight through the domestic and international supply chain,” Clement said. “As the largest railroad in the eastern United States serving 40 intermodal terminals across its network, and providing nation-wide connectivity through Class I rail partners, CSX Transportation’s intermodal business provides shippers with a transportation solution that offers scalable capacity, sustainable savings, and predictable service.”

Intermodal.com provides a variety of new features, including:

• A multimedia library that features informational videos and interviews.

• Informational brochures and fact sheets that explain topics such as blocking and bracing.

• An interactive “build a shipment” map that enables users to customize a potential route for intermodal freight movements.

• Customer testimonials.
