CSX supports customers at National Ethanol Conference

Tuesday, Feb 25, 2014

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CSX Transportation was on hand this week in Orlando, Fla., to support the Renewable Fuels Association's 19th annual National Ethanol Conference and to keep shipper awareness high of the company's transportation capabilities in this important market.

"Even before The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, CSX has been actively supporting the ethanol industry and working with our customers and their receivers to ensure safe, efficient delivery of ethanol," said Clarence Gooden, executive vice president and chief commercial officer. "We look forward to continuing to work toward those objectives with both unit-train deliveries and single-car shipments."

One of CSX's services is called EthX, an express ethanol delivery that is safe, efficient and cost effective. Through EthX, CSX moves 80-car unit trains to a network of 18 eastern terminals. But the company also handles smaller shipments with the same level of efficiency, said Kyle Hancock, vice president-industrial and agricultural.

"The ethanol network has potential to grow, especially if gasoline blends include a higher percentage of ethanol," Hancock said. "Meeting our shippers and receivers face to face at the National Ethanol Conference is a great way to sustain and grow our business."
