Rail-to-truck transfer capacity added
The Carolina Connector (CCX) intermodal terminal near Raleigh in North Carolina, USA, is open for business. Located on a mainline of the US class I railway CSX, the new terminal adds rail-to-truck transfer capacity for domestic and international container shipments.
CCX features three wide-span and zero-emission electric cranes with a lift capacity of 110,000 containers per year. Most of the container handling will be fully automated with operators safely controlling the initial lift and final placement from inside the terminal building.
In addition, CCX maximises safe and efficient truck movement with CSX’s XGate technology that automates the in-gate process, streamlines traffic flows and automatically inspects loads leaving the facility. (ben)
