CSX, Schneider National forge pact to expand Ohio intermodal services


Today, Schneider National Inc. announced it reached an agreement with CSX Transportation to broaden intermodal services in northwestern Ohio. Schneider National’s service now will include two intermodal ramps in Marion and North Baltimore, Ohio.

The pact will expand Schneider Intermodal’s service to the Northeast, Southeast and Pacific Northwest, Schneider National officials said in a prepared statement. In addition, service capability will be enhanced throughout the U.S. and Mexico, and multi-modal options will increase for shippers, they said.

“Our service options enhancement in Ohio follows our brand promise to offer ‘truck-like’ service by creating more creative solutions to move freight,” said Steve Van Kirk, Schneider National’s senior vice president-intermodal commercial management.

CSXT became Schneider National’s primary eastern rail provider in 2008. In January, Schneider National and the Class I forged a multi-year agreement under which CSXT will continue to serve as a primary rail provider.

In addition to service coverage in the East with CSXT, Schneider National provides intermodal services in the West with BNSF Railway Co., as well as Canadian and Mexican border-crossing services with CN and Kansas City Southern.
