Intermodal: CSXI, UP expand STAX container program's reach

CSXI Intermodal and Union Pacific Railroad recently added lanes to STAX, a domestic-container program offering intermodal shippers 53-foot high-cube containers and coast-to-coast logistics services.

The program now is available for West Coast moves originating in Atlanta; Baltimore; Boston; Charlotte, N.C.; Chicago; Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio; Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Miami and Tampa, Fla.; Fort Smith, Ark.; Memphis, Tenn.; New York City; Philadelphia; Portsmouth, Va.; South Kearny, N.J.; and Worcester, Mass.
