Based in Jacksonville, FL, CSX is a transportation company providing rail, intermodal and rail-to-truck transload services and solutions to customers across an array of markets, including energy, industrial, construction, agricultural, and consumer products.  For this latest crop of properties, CSX worked with more than 40 communities over several months to gather information and identify top candidates.

“We are very excited to announce this latest round of Select Site designees and congratulate the landowners, counties, and utility partners involved,” said Kellen Riley, CSX Senior Director of Industrial Development. “The information collected for these properties, which will soon be available online through the CSX Prospector listing, will allow site consultants and manufacturers a quick and convenient way to identify premium rail served industrial properties where they can locate new manufacturing facilities — generating new jobs and capital investment.”
