Schneider, a provider of truckload, intermodal and logistics services, this month began offering intermodal services at the CSX Indianapolis ramp.
The new intermodal ramp service will provide shippers in the central/southern Indiana, Louisville, Kentucky and Cincinnati markets with a more cost-competitive transportation option to eastern markets.
Officials said Eastbound freight will travel from Indianapolis to North Bergen, New Jersey, and Worcester, Massachusetts.
Each lane is set to operate six days per week and offer eastbound two- to three-day transit times. Inbound freight will travel from North Bergen to Indianapolis.
“Customers are excited to experience our expanding intermodal service with CSX through its Indianapolis ramp,” says Jim Filter, senior vice president and general manager of Schneider’s Intermodal division. “This is a new option for shippers to reliably move loads at transit times competitive to truckload. We’re also confident this will provide cost-competitive intermodal service to the region, as eastbound freight will not have to be drayed to Chicago.”
The addition of the Indianapolis ramp allows Schneider to offer intermodal service to more than 40 ramps throughout North America, officials said.
