Discover Highway to Intermodal Rail Conversion Opportunities

Shippers who incorporate intermodal into their supply chains by converting sub-optimized freight from highway to rail effectively decrease transportation costs, increase access to capacity and reduce their supply chain’s carbon footprint. By diversifying modal selection, shippers also mitigate capacity related risks and produce short and long term supply chain benefits.

CSX Transportation (CSXT) can help shippers maximize their supply chain’s efficiencies through its Highway to Rail Optimizer (H2R). The H2R Optimizer is a comprehensive tool that analyzes a shipper’s supply chain to identify current over-the-road freight moves that are a good fit for intermodal rail conversion. By simply providing freight origin and destination zip codes, the H2R Optimizer analyzes a shipper’s truckload file and highlights conversion opportunities that may lead to capacity and cost savings.

In 2016, 94% of the shipper files analyzed by the CSXT H2R Optimizer contained truckload freight with an available intermodal solution.
