Rail and Intermodal Providers’ Agreement Includes Improved Transits
GREEN BAY, Wis. – June 11, 2012 – Schneider National, Inc., the premier provider of truckload, intermodal and logistics services, announced today that it has reached an agreement with CSX Transportation to broaden its services in Northwestern Ohio. The agreement expands Schneider’s intermodal service to now include two rail ramps in the region: Marion and North Baltimore.
Within the United States, the new agreement will broaden Schneider Intermodal’s service to the Northeast, Southeast and Pacific Northwest. In addition, improved transits will enhance service capability throughout the U.S. and Mexico while enabling more multi-modal options for shippers.
“Schneider National is committed to creating new solutions to meet our customers’ supply chain challenges,” said Steve Van Kirk, senior vice president, Intermodal commercial management for Schneider National. “We will continually evolve our asset-based intermodal solutions with strong rail providers to ensure this success. Our service options enhancement in Ohio follows our brand promise to offer ‘truck-like’ service by creating more creative solutions to move freight.”
CSX became Schneider’s primary Eastern rail provider in 2008. In January 2012, Schneider and CSX announced a multiyear agreement under which the railroad will continue to serve as one of Schneider’s primary rail providers. The agreement provides Schneider customers with capacity and operational interfaces to leverage the efficiency of rail moves.
Schneider provides complete North American intermodal coverage. In addition to service coverage in the East with CSX, it moves loads in the West with BNSF, as well as Canadian and Mexican border-crossings with the CN and Kansas City Southern railroads.
