CN has developed a new steel-wheel interchange service with CSX Transportation in Chicago. The service targets import containers moving over CN's network from the ports of Vancouver and Prince Rupert, British Columbia, to key Ohio Valley markets.
The service will provide CN customers "efficient and cost-effective" access to CSXT's new Northwest Terminal in North Baltimore, Ohio, as well as such vital markets as Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and Louisville, Ky., said Jean-Jacques Ruest, CN’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer, in a prepared statement.
CN and CSXT previously exchanged container traffic in Chicago via truck.
"Together, our interchange agreements with CSX and Norfolk Southern Corp. for container traffic moving over the Chicago gateway to northeast U.S. markets underscore CN's commitment to improving the efficiency of its customers' supply chains, with the goal of making them more competitive in their end markets," said Ruest.
