CSXI, UP to provide 'Passport' intermodal service to western Mexico

Beginning Feb. 14, CSX Intermodal and Union Pacific Railroad plan to provide "Passport" container service to western Mexico markets. The railroads will move 53-foot STAX containers across the U.S./Mexico border at Nogales, Sonora, Mexico.

CSXI and UP plan to provide access to more than 100 destinations and seven new Mexican commercial zones: Nogales, Santa Ana, Guyamas, Ciudada Obregon, and Hermosillo, Sonora; and Los Mochis and Culiacun, Sinaloa.

Through their joint Passport service, CSXI and UP provide 53-foot container and 48-foot trailer moves between the eastern and southeastern United States, and Mexico. CSXI's STAX domestic-container program offers intermodal shippers 53-foot high-cube containers — featuring 110-inch door openings and floors designed to withstand 24,000 pounds — and coast-to-coast logistics services.
