Environmental Benefits for Customers


As companies look at the environmental impacts of their supply chains, particularly related to product transport, CSX anticipates growth in freight rail. A typical CSX freight train is approximately four times more fuel-efficient than highway freight transportation and can carry the cargo load of 280 trucks.

CSX enables customers to reduce transport-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by approximately 60% to 80% when switching from truck to rail transport of goods. These actions help customers realize reduced environmental footprints and cost efficiencies compared to truck transport.
