Plant Switch

Submit plant switch requests to have CSX place, move or pick up cars.

When you use the ShipCSX Plant Switch tool, you can:

  • Send switch requests without having to pick up the phone or create a list to fax.
  • View inventory en route, at your CSX serving yard and at your facility.
  • Submit, modify or delete requests from the same screen.
  • Review your requests before submitting them.
  • Receive instant confirmation of requests sent.
  • View current or past requests.
  • View historical information to control demurrage.
  • Download and print information.

This tool is ideal for switching 5 or more cars at a time.

ShipCSX Plant Switch may also be used to submit a General Place Request (Plant General) or Manage Inventory.

Manage Inventory provides the ability to update car locations within an industry, add or delete railcars from a track, and submit switch requests.
