  • FHWA estimates that the Mid Atlantic region will experience a significant growth in freight over the next decade. Along with that growth in freight, we will see increased highway congestion on the east coast.
  • Given the projected growth in freight and increased highway congestion, the nation’s economic competitiveness depends upon a rail network that can effectively handle growing volumes of freight and seamlessly link all modes of transportation – maritime, rail and trucking. CSX is working with many of our partners – both public and private – to maximize the efficiency of freight rail, partnering with trucking companies and working with states to make infrastructure improvements to the transportation network.
  • CSX is currently working with a number of public and private entities to advance a key freight PPP, the National Gateway. This project consists of 61 clearance projects in 6 states and the District of Columbia to achieve 21’0” clearance for double-stack intermodal service. Clearance work varies from minor modifications to complete reconstruction of bridges, tunnels and other infrastructure In addition, there are several intermodal terminal projects located along the route (highlighted in purple). NW Ohio When complete, the National Gateway will increase the efficiency of the transportation network by allowing more freight per train, reducing logistics costs by providing alternate shipping options and will also reduce congestion and emissions.

  • National Transportation Demands and Trends View slide
  • Transportation demand is on the rise and congestion is getting worse Today Today 2020 Source: USDOT FHWA Freight Analysis Framework CSX Territory
  • CSX is working to meet these challenges
    • Increased need for supply chain flexibility
      • Shifting global supply chains
      • Globalization, Panama Canal expansion favor diversification to East Coast ports
    • Intermodal freight transport increasingly critical to meeting nation’s transportation needs
      • Combined efficiency of freight rail and flexibility of highway transportation
  • National Gateway: Critical to meeting future freight demands NW Ohio Transfer Yard Pittsburgh Chambersburg Columbus Charlotte
    • 61 clearance projects in 6 states and the District of Columbia to achieve 21’0” clearance.
      • Construction work varies from minor modifications to complete reconstruction of bridges, tunnels and other infrastructure.
    • 6 new/enhanced terminals along the National Gateway corridors utilizing the latest technology.
    • 80% of Total Project Costs are Committed
    BWI Current and Planned Double Stack Routes National Gateway Project Chicago New York Florida Boston St. Louis Memphis New Orleans Wilmington Hampton Roads Baltimore
  • National Gateway provides solutions to our nation’s challenges, over $10 billion in public benefits* *2009 TIGER Application and tax/wage information
    • Stimulates the economy
      • Creates over 50,000 jobs and provides economic development through terminal construction.
    • Positions U.S. to compete in a global economy
      • The National Gateway improves the efficiency of our transportation network and provides over $3.5 billion in shipper and logistics cost savings.
    • Reduces highway maintenance costs, congestion and improves safety
      • The National Gateway improves safety and highway congestion by maximizing the efficiency of freight rail and partnering with trucking companies to provide significant emissions benefits and converting 14.3 billion highway miles traveled to rail.
    • Lessens greenhouse gas emissions and helps improve air quality
      • The National Gateway will improve the flow of freight by rail, reducing fuel consumption by 2 billion gallons. This improved fuel efficiency saves over 20 million tons of CO2.
  • CSX: How Tomorrow Moves…Responsibly
  • Rail is sustainable
    • Rail has the lowest carbon footprint of all modes,
      • About 1/3 rd of truck
      • 1 ton of freight moves 436 miles on one gallon of fuel
    • Rail is Safest land mode of transportation
    • Rail creates NO congestion of the State and Federal Highways
    • Rail is good for National Security (better control and supervision of shipments)
    • Rail creates value for shippers
      • Shippers and receivers want to use rail
    • CSX Transportation, Inc. is the largest railroad in the Eastern United States and serves over 70 U.S. ports
  • Carbon Calculator @ www.CSX.com Rail can eliminate 2/3rds of the CO 2 versus truck Corporate Responsibility: Shippers want to minimize the carbon footprint of their product
  • What Travels by Rail?
  • If it’s in your life, it’s been on our trains…
    • Building Materials
    • Household Goods
    • Agricultural Products
    • Automobiles
    • Coal and other Fuels
  • A great track record together : CSX and Economic Development Partners
    • On average over the past three years we have:
      • Won 129 new/expanded business
      • Created 6,000 new jobs
      • Created $4 billion in local investment
    • With household names like these:
  • CSX Partners for Local Economic Development
  • Rail Served Communities can create a rail advantage for economic development
    • All communities which have rail access will have:
      • Improved access directly into the CSXT high speed rail network
      • Access to the national rail network
      • Access to all major US markets and international ports
      • to global markets
      • Improved service due to CSXT access redesign
      • The cost advantage of rail service
      • A competitive advantage for site location
        • (Industrial companies requiring rail access for site selection has increase from 10-40% in the past 8 years – source: Deloitte Consulting )
    • Sustainable transportation is a major factor in demand for rail
    • and the rail industry is investing private capital to support a cleaner environment
    • Partner with CSXT to grow local companies, tax base, jobs
  • Together we make a great team!
