CSX Supports Customers at National Ethanol Conference
- February 21, 2014 - CSX Transportation was on hand this week in Orlando,
Fla., to support the Renewable Fuels Association's 19th annual National
Ethanol Conference and to keep shipper awareness high of the company's
transportation capabilities in this important market.
"Even before The
Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, CSX has been actively
supporting the ethanol industry and working with our customers and their
receivers to ensure safe, efficient delivery of ethanol," said Clarence
Gooden, executive vice president and chief commercial officer. "We look
forward to continuing to work toward those objectives with both unit-train
deliveries and single-car shipments."
One of CSX's services is called
EthX, an express ethanol delivery that is safe, efficient and cost
effective. Through EthX, CSX moves 80-car unit trains to a network of 18
eastern terminals. But the company also handles smaller shipments with the
same level of efficiency, said Kyle Hancock, vice president-industrial and
"The ethanol network has potential to grow, especially if
gasoline blends include a higher percentage of ethanol," Hancock said.
"Meeting our shippers and receivers face to face at the National Ethanol
Conference is a great way to sustain and grow our business."
