Schneider names BNSF Railway, CSX Intermodal as primary rail providers
Mar 1, 2008 12:00 PM
Schneider National Inc. is consolidating its network of primary rail providers and simplifying its container/trailer pool operations to enhance its intermodal service. Schneider Intermodal will use BNSF Railway and CSX Intermodal as primary rail providers.
BNSF will serve as the primary western rail provider, and CSXI will serve as Schneider's primary eastern rail provider in the United States. Schneider will maintain secondary relationships with the other Class I railroads to reach markets not served by BNSF and CSXI. The new agreements provide Schneider customers with preferential loading, capacity, and operational interfaces that will increase accessibility and efficiency of rail moves.
In concert with the new agreements, Schneider is moving to one standardized intermodal container for customers' rail moves. The use of a single Schneider-owned container will simplify container pools while creating operational efficiencies in network management and operations. Trailer on flat car (TOFC) will continue as a Schneider intermodal offering for those who value a premium faster intermodal transit.
