CSX recognizes 65 companies for hazmat safety in 2021


CSX has presented its Chemical Safety Excellence Award to 65 customers for their "outstanding contribution" to the safe transportation of hazardous materials in 2021.

The awards were presented to companies that shipped at least 600 carloads of hazardous materials with CSX during the year without a hazmat release due to controllable factors.

Representing a wide range of industry segments, the winning companies shipped over 185,000 carloads of hazardous materials on the Class I's network in 2021.

CSX gave special recognition to global chemical company Kemira, which led all hazard materials shippers with 21 consecutive years as a CSX award winner.

Also receiving special recognition were ExxonMobil Chemical Co. and Messer North America, which reached their 10-consecutive-year milestone as award winners; and Americas Styrenics, Ascend Performance Materials and Shintech, which reached five consecutive years without a nonaccidental release.
