The CSX Business Development Team is here to help locate the best rail served sites for development or expansion. CSX has been best in class for over a decade in identifying and certifying premium rail served sites in the Eastern United States. Our robust program offers many levels of recognition.
In partnership with Austin Consulting Group, a pioneer in site location consulting for more than 70 years, Platinum sites have gone through our most detailed and rigorous certification process, ensuring a high level of completion of due diligence. Platinum certification criteria accounts for property size, access to rail service, proximity to highways, workforce availability, natural gas, electricity, water, and wastewater access and a thorough review of environmental and geo-technical standards.
Gold, Silver and Bronze-qualified Sites
CSX also offers communities other levels of promotion through tools provided through our partnership with Global Location Strategies (“GLS”), another globally recognized site selection firm. Predetermined Requests for Information (RFIs) were developed using the historical sizes and scope of rail related projects that CSX has been successful in attracting to its system. These RFIs are sent to communities across CSX’s system, the data and responses for which are then consolidated and sorted through GLS’s Lasso and Site Shepherd tools. The Gold, Silver and Bronze designations represent how closely the respective sites align with the mock RFI.
