Schneider National and CSX Transportation have reached agreement to expand their intermodal services in the Northwestern Ohio region. Under the new agreement, Schneider’s intermodal service will now include two rail ramps, one in Marion and one in North Baltimore.
This new expansion will provide Schneider Intermodal with service to the Northeast, Southeast and Pacific Northwest.
“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. That deal was expanded earlier this year.
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.
