INDIANAPOLIS — Truckload and intermodal carrier Schneider has begun Midwest-to-East Coast intermodal service from the CSX Transportation Indianapolis ramp.

The new service is designed to serve shippers in central and southern Indiana, Cincinnati, and Louisville, Ky.

Eastbound traffic moves six days per week from Indianapolis to North Bergen, N.J., and Worchester, Mass., with two- to three-day transit times. Westbound freight moves from North Bergen to Indianapolis.

“This is a new option for shippers to reliably move loads at transit times competitive to truckload,” says Jim Filer, senior vice president and general manager of Schneider’s Intermodal Division. “We’re also confident this will provide cost-competitive intermodal service to the region, as eastbound freight will not have to be drayed to Chicago.”

Schneider claims its CSX intermodal service connection to the East can operate at rates as much as a third below those of over-the-road truckload operations.
