New Domestic Premium Container Service From Los Angeles to Northwest Ohio (CSX) Beginning July 11, 2011

BNSF is committed to offering intermodal solutions that leverage the best attributes of rail and truck service combinations to provide our customers competitive options to key markets. We are pleased to announce a new Domestic Premium container service which will run five days a week (Monday through Friday) from Los Angeles, CA to the new CSX Northwest Ohio facility beginning on July 11, 2011. BNSF will begin to offer a run-through service to CSX and eliminate the need for a cross-town in Chicago, IL. This direct train service will allow our customers to experience greater reliability and improved transit times to the Ohio market.

Customers who want to utilize a rail connection to points farther east on the CSX network can use this service to Northwest Ohio and catch connections to the following destinations:

Baltimore, MD
Boston, MA
Buffalo, NY
Cincinnati, OH
Cleveland, OH
Columbus, OH
Detroit, MI
N. Kearny, NJ
Philadelphia, PA
Portsmouth, VA
Syracuse, NY

Chambersburg, PA and Springfield, MA will continue to be served via Bedford Park, IL and will need to be cross-towned in Chicago.

The CSX Northwest Ohio Facility is located at:
17000 Deschler Road
North Baltimore, OH 45872
