Kingsboro Industrial Sites Receive CSX Select Site Designation

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CSX Corporation today announced that the Kingsboro Industrial Sites in Edgecombe County, North Carolina, are the first recipients in the state to receive CSX Select Site designation.

CSX's Select Sites program reviews manufacturing and distribution development sites along the CSX network that can rapidly utilize freight rail service.  This designation confirms that standard land use issues have been addressed and that the site is ready for development.

"Through Select Sites, we can provide increased speed to market and lower up-front development risk for companies seeking industrial property for manufacturing operations," said Clark Robertson, assistant vice president, regional development, CSX. "This program helps communities identify sites that can compete effectively for new investments and job creation."

"The Kingsboro Industrial Sites are a rare find," said Jonathan Gemmen, location consultant, The Austin Company.  "With increasing demand for rail services, we were surprised to see this available group of large, rail-served industrial sites adjacent to an interstate quality highway.  The sites are flat and cleared, and the utilities are adjacent to the property with ample capacity."

CSX introduced the Select Sites program in January to better serve customers in their own backyards by adding rail transport access routes for some of the premier manufacturing properties in the eastern U.S. CSX partnered with The Austin Company, a nationally-known site selection and certification consulting firm, to screen candidate sites and assist communities with the application and certification process.

To receive CSX Select Site designation, the location must meet a rigorous list of criteria. Once certified, the sites are also featured on a new user-friendly web portal featuring press releases, promotional materials and direct marketing to site selection professionals.

CSX would like to thank the Carolina Gateway Partnership, Edgecombe County, Edgecombe-Martin Cooperative, Golden Leaf Foundation, and NC Eastern Region for their financial support to complete the Select Site work.

In addition to the Kingsboro Industrial Sites, CSX has certified six other sites located in Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and South Carolina.
