Intermodal: NS offers guaranteed, lower-priced service between Chicago and Pennsylvania


Norfolk Southern Railway recently redesigned its Chicago-to-Taylor, Pa., intermodal service by adding a guaranteed-service option, upgrading terminal infrastructure and lowering rates.

The "On-time or Free Guarantee" option — available for an additional $100 charge per container — applies to 48- and 53-foot Equipment Management Program containers, 48-foot North American Container System containers, rail-controlled trailers, and privately owned trailers and containers.

To accommodate more traffic, NS re-paved Taylor terminal's inbound and outbound lanes, and added parking spaces.

The Class I plans soon to improve the lane's westbound service, as well as introduce additional guaranteed-service options.
