Schneider National renews intermodal pact with CSXT

Today, transportation, intermodal and logistics services provider Schneider National Inc. announced it signed a new multi-year agreement with CSX Transportation under which the Class I will serve as one of Schneider National’s primary rail providers. The pact “sets the stage for sustained, long-term service within the eastern United States as Schneider’s intermodal freight volumes continue to increase,” Schneider National officials said in a prepared statement.

CSXT became the company’s primary eastern rail provider in 2008. Since then, the parties have continued to enhance their performance to deliver “truck-like” service to shippers, Schneider National officials said. The agreement provides Schneider customers with capacity, operational interfaces and access to preferential loading, they said.

“The expansion of our relationship with CSX will create a strong foundation for Schneider Intermodal’s continued growth and our customer’s success,” said Bill Matheson, Schneider National’s president of intermodal services. “We’re recommitting the expertise of one of the nation’s major railroads and one of the largest intermodal providers at a time when truckload capacity is getting tighter and shippers need creative new solutions to move freight.”

Schneider National also moves intermodal loads in the West with BNSF Railway Co., and transports Canadian and Mexican border-crossing traffic with CN and Kansas City Southern.
