CSX Corp. will delay its construction of a new intermodal container transfer facility in its headquarters city of Jacksonville, Fla., by six months to a year. The planned terminal, originally set to open in 2011, will handle sea/rail container traffic with TraPac Container Terminal and Hanjin Shipping Co. Ltd.

Adam Bridges, assistant vice president of CSX Intermodal Inc., said approximately 1.8 million TEUs are anticipated to be handled by the new terminal facility. Bridges said the cost and exact location of the new facility are still to be determined.
