Intermodal terminal in Pittsburgh up and running
The US class I railroad CSX has commenced operations at its new Pittsburgh intermodal rail terminal. The facility provides shippers a new transportation option to move freight to and from western Pennsylvania.
The new terminal is the last key component of CSX’s USD l.85 billion national gateway initiative to create a highly efficient network of double-stack rail and intermodal terminals, connecting US east coast markets to centres in the midwest.
Through the national gateway initiative, more than 95% of CSX’s intermodal network is now double-stack cleared, maximizing the potential efficiency of the service. (ben)
