Coal

CSX is the largest coal transporter east of the Mississippi River and directly serves more than 100 active load-outs in 9 states. We also interchange with multiple Class I and short line railroad partners to access additional coal loading facilities from all coal basins. We have a proven track record of providing our customers with safe and efficient supply chains for moving domestic and export coal. 

CSX provides service from the largest number of active coal origins, seamlessly interchanges with Western railroads and short lines, and provides access to multiple Eastern seaports. Our newly updated car fleet readily supports a variety of loading and unloading systems for coal and coal-related products including coke, iron ore, petroleum coke and synfuel.

Our specialized unit train service creates an efficient pipeline that allows us to move more than 130 - 165 million tons of coal products per year. The CSX network runs through the heart of the Appalachian coal fields, and we have direct access to producers of all coal qualities.
