CSXI, CN launch Memphis-to-Northeast trailer service

On Feb. 20, CSX Intermodal and Canadian National Railway Co. began offering a new trailer service between CN's Memphis terminal and CSXI's intermodal facilities in Philadelphia; Baltimore; Boston and Springfield, Mass.; Syracuse, N.Y.; and Little Ferry, N.J. The Class Is are providing the service via the Chicago gateway.

On March 22, CSXI plans to cancel its existing trailer service between Memphis and the Northeast via Savannah, Ga.

In July 2003, CN and CSXI announced plans to build the "Memphis Super Terminal," a 155-acre, five-track intermodal facility in southwest Memphis designed to handle 200,000 container/trailer lifts annually, and provide 1,800 parking spots for trailers and containers.

Expected to be completed in fall, the facility will replace a CN-owned terminal used by CSXI immediately adjacent to CN's Johnston Yard.
