“According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, in addition to their own employees, freight railroads sustain more than 1 million jobs across related and support industries.”

Most everyday products were shipped on a freight train – the things you wear, drive, eat, turn on and even live inside likely journeyed to you via the CSX transportation network. Freight railroads like CSX support economic growth and job development while reducing the transportation industry’s environmental impact.
CSX provides safe, reliable freight transportation services that fuel the economy and lives of consumers every day. In 2016, CSX moved nearly 6.5 million units of freight.
Along with creating value for our shareholders, CSX creates and sustains jobs, builds new facilities, and grows and expands business across the network. In 2016, CSX worked with customers on 114 projects to build or expand facilities on its network and short-line partners. CSX contributes to the economic health and sustainability of the communities across the network by providing wages and benefits to employees and retirees, paying taxes at the local, state, and federal level, and helping to grow commerce and attract more local business.
