Marion, OH Partners with CSX and Schneider
Schneider to start dedicated Ohio intermodal service
CSX Intermodal is the shipping container and truck business affiliated with CSX railroad.
Schneider will provide local pickup and delivery and operate an intermodal ramp to load dedicated trains running from Marion to Kansas City, Missouri, with connecting service to California and the Southwest. Four trains will operate on the 700-mile route from Marion to Kansas City and back, six days per week. The new service is expected to slice a day off normal freight train transit times to the West Coast.
Schneider said it plans to expand the offering to include service to Dallas and Mexico later this year and is also exploring service to the Pacific Northwest. Marion may be going "back to the future" as a prominent midwest rail junction!
