Railroad association honours rail hubs
Terminals operated by Total Distribution Services (TDSI), a CSX subsidiary, received the Association of American Railroads (AAR) Terminal of the Year Award in both the origin and destination categories.
The award winners are chosen based on the results of audits at about 180 automotive origin and destination terminals in the USA.
Origin terminals load new vehicles onto rail cars as they leave manufacturing plants, and destination terminals unload vehicles bound for local dealerships.
The quality review audits cover hundreds of items related to the policy, procedures and conditions at the facilities, with emphasis on safe operations and damage prevention. (ben)
