Intermodal: Terminal locations continue to mount for CSXI's, UP's STAX program


On Nov. 18, CSX Intermodal and Union Pacific Railroad added originating and terminating locations to their STAX domestic-container program.

Interline service now is available to and from terminals in Houston; Seattle; Portland, Ore.; Fresno, Lathrop and Oakland, Calif.; and Syracuse, N.Y.

CSXI and UP recently expanded STAX service to cities between the U.S. Southeast (Memphis gateway) and Dallas, and El Paso, Texas, and Phoenix.

Through STAX, the railroads offer 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.
