CSX and Schneider have reached a new multiyear agreement in which the Class I will continue to serve as one of Schneider's primary rail providers.

The agreement enables Schneider to serve the eastern United States as demand for intermodal transportation increases, Schneider officials said Tuesday in a press release.

"By combining the expertise of one of the country's largest intermodal providers and one of the country's major railroads, Schneider has been able to provide creative solutions to more efficiently move intermodal freight with truck-like service," said Jim Filter, senior vice president and general manager of Schneider Intermodal.

CSX became Schneider's primary Eastern rail provider in 2008. The agreement provides Schneider customers with capacity and operational interfaces designed to increase accessibility and efficiency of rail moves.

Also, CSX's capital investments in projects such as the Northwest Ohio Intermodal Terminal have improved its infrastructure and facilitated expanded service offerings to the most Eastern origins and destinations, Schneider officials said.

"There is significant opportunity to optimize modal selection and convert freight from highway to rail in the Eastern U.S. CSX continues to invest in the intermodal growth opportunity, and we are excited to extend our relationship with Schneider as they truly are a premier intermodal provider," said CSX Vice President-Intermodal Dean Piacente.
