Wide-span cranes on way to CSX's new Ohio terminal


Tomorrow, CSX Corp., National Gateway and Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority officials plan to mark the arrival of five wide-span cranes at the Port of Toledo.

Bound for CSX’s new Northwest Ohio Terminal in North Baltimore, Ohio, the cranes are designed to reduce energy consumption, cut air emissions and improve efficiency compared with other intermodal terminal cranes. The terminal is considered the cornerstone of the National Gateway, a public-private partnership between CSX and several states that aims to establish a domestic double-stack intermodal corridor between Mid-Atlantic ports and Midwestern markets.
The port authority also plans to dedicate and name two new mobile harbor cranes — the only such twin cranes in operation at any U.S. Great Lakes port, according to the authority. The cranes will modernize the port’s material handling capabilities and be funded by American Recovery and Reinvestment Act dollars, authority officials said in a media advisory.
