A CSX executive said this week the carrier has completed making major changes to its intermodal operations and is now looking for business growth opportunities.
Speaking at the annual Intermodal Expo of the Intermodal Association of North America, Maryclare Kenney, vice president of intermodal and automotive at CSX, said the carrier is now able to provide more reliable service.
“We’re looking to grow,” Kenney said. “We’re open for business and we’re excited by the consistent, reliable service we’re able to bring customers.”
CSX overhauled its intermodal network soon after adopting the precision scheduled railroading operating model.
One major change was to end the hub and spoke business model that involved the Northwest Ohio Intermodal Terminal, which CSX had used as a sorting hub for containers brought in from various points on its system.
