CSXI, UP to drop 'STAX' domestic container program



CSX Intermodal and Union Pacific Railroad are ending the STAX container program they launched in May 2003. The Class Is will stop offering STAX interline prices Aug. 1.

Through STAX, CSXI and UP had been offering domestic intermodal shippers 53-foot high-cube containers and coast-to-coast logistics services. The railroads are suspending the program to improve the utilization of 53-foot containers currently assigned to STAX.

“As the STAX program is de-marketed over the next few months, a large majority of containers will be reassigned into other container programs,” CSXI officials said in a prepared statement.
