CSX CFO Highlights Continued Long-term Growth Supported By Intermodal Expansion









JACKSONVILLE, Fla., June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Expansion in domestic and international intermodal markets will help to drive continued long-term profitable growth at CSX, the company's Chief Financial Officer Fredrik Eliasson told analysts today at the 2013 Cowen and Company 6 th Annual Global Transportation Conference in New York.

"Our network serves nearly two-thirds of the nation's population and is well-positioned to capture a significant share of the domestic intermodal market opportunity, estimated at about 9 million total loads in the eastern United States," Eliasson said. "Investments in expanded capacity will help convert this long-run opportunity, building on about 30 percent growth in our intermodal business over the last three years."

CSX shipped 2.5 million intermodal containers in 2012, with 90 percent of that traffic in double-stacked service. The company continues to invest in capital projects to expand its intermodal network, which will further increase double-stacked corridors by 2015 with hubs aligned with major ports and population centers.

Eliasson also appeared on the "Bloomberg Surveillance" television and radio program prior to his conference appearance to discuss the renaissance in the rail industry and CSX's balanced approach to creating shareholder value.
