CSX Corporation has announced the opening of a new intermodal terminal in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield near Montreal, Canada. The facility expands CSX’s intermodal network capacity and offers Canadian customers domestic and international service that connects with the railroad’s 21,000 mile network in the US.
“CSX continues to invest in our intermodal business as a key growth driver and we look for long-term opportunities, such as increased north-south trade access outlined by the North American Free Trade Agreement,” said Clarence Gooden, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer at CSX. “Opening a terminal near Montreal creates an opportunity to build relationships with new customers on our network, expand access to new markets, and improve the efficiency of the North American supply chain.”
The $100m terminal, which covers 89 acres, has capacity for 100,000 loads and offers both point-to-point corridor service and a hub-and-spoke model that allows it to reach into small- and medium-sized markets, to capitalize on the growing demand for intermodal transport. Trains serving the new terminal will also connect through the Northwest Ohio intermodal hub, offering access to markets across the US and Canada.
