CSX announces new growth initiatives for Northwest Ohio Intermodal Terminal

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CSX Corporation (NASDAQ: CSX) today announced new growth initiatives for its Northwest Ohio Intermodal Terminal. These initiatives include: a new haulage agreement with the BNSF Railway Company (BNSF) that enhances western access into the Ohio Valley; a partnership with NorthPoint Development to construct an adjacent logistics park; and expanded eastern access to the facility via new service to and from the Port of New York and New Jersey.  In combination, these opportunities position the strategically-located terminal for growth and strengthen CSX’s value offering in the Ohio Valley.

James M. Foote, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “CSX’s Northwest Ohio Intermodal Terminal is ideally situated on CSX’s main line network 30 miles south of Toledo on Interstate 75 and is surrounded by a population of nearly 30 million within a 200-mile radius. We are excited to transform Northwest Ohio into a regional demand point that provides attractive solutions for customers and supply chain needs.”

The agreement with BNSF builds on a strong partnership to launch a premium intermodal service product between Los Angeles and CSX’s Northwest Ohio terminal. The domestic and international container service is scheduled to begin on October 29, 2018.

NorthPoint Development will build a logistics park adjacent to the Northwest Ohio facility with access to over 500 acres for the project.  The logistics park will include traditional warehousing and distribution capabilities, as well as value-added services such as a container yard and equipment storage, export container stuffing, and transload and breakbulk resources, all within a heavy-haul local corridor.

To enable customers to fully take advantage of the amenities provided by the terminal and logistics park, CSX will expand existing east coast port offerings to and from Northwest Ohio by adding service between the facility and the Port of New Yorkand New Jersey.

This suite of new services and support are enabled by the improved train plan and simplified switching operation at the Northwest Ohio terminal, which will contribute to long-term, profitable intermodal growth.

How to Make Smart Decisions

During “Benefits” Enrollment Season….

(Family Features) Every fall, millions of American workers spend time making financial decisions that will affect them for the entire upcoming year.

Benefits enrollment season is a critical time for choosing coverages that protect the health and financial stability of individuals and families. Despite the importance of these decisions, nearly half (49 percent) of people spend less than 30 minutes reviewing their options before making selections, according to research from Unum, a leader in employee benefits.

Personal finance expert Laura Adams said not carefully reviewing all your employee benefits options can mean leaving money on the table or serious gaps in your financial safety net.

“Employers are increasingly offering consumer-directed health plans, which typically charge lower premiums but higher deductibles and other out-of-pocket costs,” Adams said. “Because of these additional financial burdens, I always recommend taking advantage of your employer’s health savings account (HSA).”

Money deposited into an HSA is tax deductible even if you don’t itemize deductions on your tax return. It grows tax-free and it can be withdrawn tax-free for qualified medical expenses. Unlike some flexible spending accounts, the unused funds in HSAs roll over.

In addition to your HSA contributions, review your employer’s voluntary benefits to help close gaps that can expose you to financial risk. Getting this coverage at work can be one way to gain access to a variety of affordable options. Voluntary benefits are also generally available to employees at a lower rate than the cost of getting coverage individually.

Adams recommends carefully reviewing benefits materials provided by your employer prior to the open enrollment period, and paying special attention to the voluntary benefits that can help to reduce financial risk:

  • Disability insurance can help replace a portion of your paycheck should you get sick or injured and can’t work – you can think of it as income protection. Most plans will pay up to 60 percent of your salary if you’re unable to work due to a covered illness or injury.
  • Term life insurance provides affordable protection for a specific period. Most people buy it during their working years so their death benefit can help loved ones manage their financial needs.
  • Accident insurance can pay you directly for costs associated with urgent care and emergency room visits, ambulance transportation and follow-up care.
  • Dental insurance is typically affordable and usually covers preventative cleanings, X-rays, exams and standard procedures. Fillings, crowns and other procedures are also generally included at a reduced rate to the policyholder.
  • Vision insurance is another low-cost voluntary benefit that covers routine eye exams, lenses, frames and, often, discounts on vision correction surgery.

While these are just a few of the more popular voluntary benefits options, it’s important to review everything your employer offers. Investing a little additional time on the front end can help reduce your family’s financial risk down the road.

3 Weeks until the Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drill

On 10.18.18, Ohioans are encouraged to Drop, Cover and Hold On…..

COLUMBUS, OH – National Preparedness Month is almost over, but that doesn’t mean we stop preparing for disasters. FEMA, the Central U.S. Earthquake Consortium (CUSEC) and the Ohio Emergency Management Agency (Ohio EMA) are encouraging citizens to stay prepared and Get Ready to ShakeOut during the annual Great Central U.S. ShakeOut earthquake drill.

Held annually on the third Thursday in October, ShakeOut is set for October 18th at 10:18 a.m. CUSEC notes though, like fire drills, the earthquake drill can be scheduled for a date and time more suitable for schools and businesses.

“People may say ‘Why do we need to practice earthquake drills in Ohio?’ We practice because Ohio does experience earthquakes,” said Ohio EMA Executive Director Sima Merick. “Ohio has had four low-scale earthquakes so far this year. It is also good to know earthquake safety in the event you’ve traveled to another state or country where quakes can occur with higher magnitude and frequency.”

The actual ShakeOut drill is only one minute long. But ShakeOut is more than an earthquake drill. ShakeOut is intended to get people to talk about emergency preparedness and to plan for all hazards and disasters such as earthquakes, floods, fires, tornadoes or hazmat incidents.

What do you do during the ShakeOut drill? Practice the safest response to an earthquake:

  • DROP where you are, onto your hands and knees. This position protects you from being knocked down and allows you to stay low and crawl to shelter if it’s nearby. If you have mobility issues, either lock the wheels of your wheelchair or stay seated, and bend over.
  • COVER your head and neck with one arm and hand. If a sturdy table or desk is nearby, crawl underneath it for shelter. If no shelter is nearby, crawl next to an interior wall, away from windows.
  • HOLD ON until the shaking stops. If you are under a table or desk for shelter, hold onto it with one hand and be ready to move with your shelter if it shifts.

There is still time to register to participate. Individuals, schools, businesses and organizations can easily register online at www.shakeout.org/centralus/. Earthquake preparedness information and resources are also available on this site. If you registered last year, you need only to confirm/update your information.

Additional earthquake preparedness information is also available at www.ready.ohio.gov. Click on “Earthquakes” in the green menu bar.

To date, more than 2 million people have registered to participate in the Great Central U.S. ShakeOut.
