Intermodal Connectivity Runs Deep

From the banks of the Mississippi River to the air, rail, marine and trucking hubs throughout western Tennessee, Memphis has earned its nickname as America's Distribution Center.

Like the mighty Mississippi’s far reaching network of tributaries, shippers in Memphis require expansive connectivity to deliver goods across the U.S. and the globe.

Memphis’ transportation options are now more diverse than ever thanks to newly introduced intermodal rail service connecting Western Tennessee to key markets including the Northeast, Midwest and New England. View markets served

More than BBQ and Blues

Memphis is home to over 900 manufacturing firms employing over 40,000 people. According to the Memphis Chamber of Commerce, the local manufacturing industry generated $8.8 billion in manufactured goods in 20141 making Made in Memphis not just a slogan, but big business. 

An Alternative to Over-the-Road Trucking 

Shippers in Memphis, as well as Arkansas and Mississippi, now have a new alternative to over-the-road trucking. As highway capacity is forecasted to tighten in late 2017, shippers should look to diversify their modal portfolio now as a hedge against shrinking truck capacity. 

With the efficiency of double-stacked intermodal trains, led by blue and gold locomotives, CSXT Intermodal is adding a touch of gold to the Memphis blues.
