New Domestic Container Intermodal Service Between Los Angeles and Various Eastern Markets

    In 2011, BNSF and CSX established new service between Los Angeles and the CSX Northwest Ohio facility. This service streamlines the interchange process between BNSF and CSX by running a direct train to Northwest Ohio, eliminating the need for truck transfer movements in Chicago and providing an overall faster transit to the Ohio Valley market.

    As part of our on-going effort to provide enhanced shipping options, we are adding new schedules between Los Angeles and twelve CSX points. These new schedules will operate on the same direct train to Northwest Ohio and will continue to provide the same seamless interchange in Chicago. CSX will operate connections from Northwest Ohio to the following locations:

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

    BNSF is the leader in providing next generation intermodal solutions and is committed to providing a menu of options that will help you utilize intermodal in a way that works for you. Shippers which need faster transit times can continue to use the schedules to Northwest Ohio combined with truck beyond NWO to markets in the Ohio Valley and the Northeast. Shippers looking for the most economical solution can use these new schedules and leverage the rail connections in Northwest Ohio.

    See the attached schedule for additional details. If you have questions, please contact your BNSF marketing representative or email
