CSXI, UP add container program to Mexican trailer service mix


On Nov. 10, CSX Intermodal and Union Pacific Railroad plan to begin offering their STAX container program to Mexican customers.

The program will expand the Class Is' "Passport Service," a joint rail/truck trailer service between the eastern and southeastern United States, and Mexico. CSXI and UP expect to move both 53-foot containers and 48-foot trailers by rail to UP's intermodal facility in Laredo, Texas, where Union Pacific Carrier Services would truck the equipment to customers' doors at more than 100 Mexican destinations.

STAX is a domestic-container program offering 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.
