The United States is expected to become the world's largest oil producer in the next few years, and CSX Transportation (CSX) is in the best position to serve the major East Coast refineries and terminals.
CSX has the premier route between the Midwest and Northeast. Our Water Level Route between Chicago and Albany has minimal grade and is all double track, allowing CSX to transport your crude oil trains from Chicago to the Hudson River, New York Harbor or Philadelphia market in less than 48 hours.
With priority access into the northeast markets, CSX is the industry leader in efficiently delivering crude oil trains to refineries and terminals along the Hudson River, New York Harbor, Delaware River, and Virginia coast. Our number one priority is the safety and security of our employees, our customers, and our communities, and CSX goes above and beyond federal regulations to ensure crude oil is transported safely.
CSX also provides a dedicated network operations team to help manage your supply chain. With our team, your trains are constantly monitored and prioritized through our network. Our team also helps schedule your crude oil trains in advance, reducing concern over delays at destination.
Several CSX customers participated in the Safety Train: Energy Preparedness Program trainings to better understand crude oil rail safety. Greg McDonald, Yorktown Rail Operations Supervisor for Plains Marketing, shares his experience of attending the Richmond, Virginia training.
