Terminal Dwell

Dwell for a single car is the total time, in hours, that a car spent in a given terminal. Aggregated dwell is calculated by dividing the total number of hours cars spent in terminals by the total count of cars dwell events (excludes bad-order cars, maintenance of way cars and stored cars).

Please note: As of February 26, 2018, CSX updated its list of its ten largest terminals, reflecting changes to the volumes handled at terminals following the implementation of scheduled railroading. Hamlet, Cumberland and Willard were removed from the list, and Jacksonville, Rocky Mount and Chicago were added. The historic data file will continue to reflect CSX’s original list of ten terminals through the week of February 21, 2018, and has been updated for the revised terminal list from that date forward.

System-wide dwell average is 8.9 hrs (week 49). Below is a map illustrating dwell at ten of our largest terminals.
