CSXI to Participate in BNSF’s Mexi-Modal transborder intermodal service

by Canadian Shipper

The Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railway Company (BNSF) and CSX Intermodal (CSXI) have announced that CSXI is now a participant in the Mexi-Modal network.

Mexi-Modal is a transborder intermodal service launched in June by BNSF to create a seamless North American transportation network. CSXI’s participation expands the Mexi-Modal network by adding major northeastern U.S. markets, including Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York City.

“With this partnership, Mexi-Modal customers can easily move freight to most major points in Canada, Mexico and the United States. Adding CSXI is another step in developing a comprehensive transborder shipping network. We continue to look for opportunities to further expand the Mexi-Modal network,” said Steve Branscum, group vice president, BNSF Consumer Products.

With Mexi-Modal, BNSF coordinates the entire transborder shipping process, door-to-door through cooperation with Canadian National Railway Company (CN), CSX Intermodal, Transportacion Ferroviaria Mexicana (TFM) and several Mexican trucking companies.

“Through our participation in the Mexi-Modal network, we can offer our customers a truck-competitive, easy-to-use transportation option into and out of Mexico,” said Clarence Gooden, CSXI president. “Customers in the Northeast will now have a service to Mexico which provides the reliability of truck and the value of rail.”

“The key to moving freight into and out of Mexico is execution at the border,” said Richard Miller, assistant vice president, BNSF Mexico Business.
