Norfolk Southern Recognizes 54 Customers For Transporting Chemicals Safely

NORFOLK, Va., May 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Norfolk Southern Corporation (NYSE: NSC) announced today that 54 customers earned the Thoroughbred Chemical Safety Award for safe handling of chemical products during 2012.

Given annually for 17 years by Norfolk Southern, the award recognizes companies and facilities that ship more than 1,000 carloads of federally regulated hazardous material over NS' rail network without a single incident for the year. Fifty-one corporations and three plants reached this goal during 2012.

These customers safely shipped more than 127,000 total carloads of chemical products used to manufacture various consumer goods. Shipments included industrial chemicals, petroleum products, biofuels, and sulfur – all vital products for consumers and the U.S. economy, but potentially dangerous if not handled carefully.

"We congratulate these valued customers for their industry-leading performance in chemical safety, and we thank them for contributing to our railroad's safe operations," said Norfolk Southern CEO Wick Moorman. "They help us demonstrate that rail transportation is the safest, most efficient, and environmentally friendly way to move goods essential for American jobs and a strong economy."
