CSX: The Intermodals (Video Series)

Posted by Infra on Wednesday, July 8th, 2015

What happens when a CSX train, truck and cargo ship work together? Efficient, affordable and environmental awesomeness is what happens. That and magic. Intermodal rail lets you reduce cost while optimizing shipments.

Randy, Sandy and Mike have a frank discussion about double-stack containers and freight trains.
By double-stacking containers, shippers experience lower fuel consumption as a result of freight density. Sustainable approach to freight transport is why intermodal rail is a responsible growth engine for tomorrow.

Mike and Carl discuss plans for the future given all their strengths in the wide world of intermodal.
Trains are the paragon of efficiency, innovation and behaving environmentally responsibly. Trucks can go where trains cannot, keen navigators of the asphalt. What does this mean? Trains and trucks are the perfect pair.

Mike and Carl make such a great pair, they start a chant.
When trucks, trains and ships come together, they can efficiently move goods across land and water.

What’s in a name? A lot if you’re part of The Intermodals gang. Watch M.I.K.E., aka Magnificent Intermodal Kinetic Engine, talking to Bob, who helps seamlessly and precisely connect the many modes of transportation, one container at a time.
