Environmental Benefits of Rail for Customers

As companies look at the environmental impacts of their supply chains, particularly related to product transportation, CSX anticipates growth in demand for freight rail services. 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 percent when switching from truck to rail transport of goods. These actions help customers realize reduced environmental footprints and cost efficiencies compared to truck transport.
