CSX offers streamlined transportation for America’s domestic and export coal. When you partner with CSX you will have direct access to a team of experienced and knowledgeable coal market experts to help provide you with custom transportation services.
- Unit trains and trainload shipments
The most efficient pipeline to move your coal is by unit train consisting entirely of your product. Shipments in dedicated trainload quantities seamlessly move coal from the mine load out facilities to receiver various destinations. This is the most cost effective way to transport your coal.
- Single-car movements
Services can be tailored to meet the individual needs of less-than-trainload shippers. Single cars or blocks of cars are readily managed, though unit train shipments are the preferred and most cost effective configuration.
