CSX Intermodal Wins Landstar Honor

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — CSX Intermodal (CSXI) has received the 2009 Intermodal Carrier of the Year award from Landstar System Inc.

Criteria for winning the award include requirements for on-time service, equipment availability and condition, ease of doing business, sales support and customer service responsiveness, and the number of shipments handled and associated claims ratio. CSXI was selected out of other companies who use major U.S. railroads to transport intermodal containers and allied service providers. In making the selection, Landstar surveyed its independent agents who handle intermodal shipments.

“On behalf of CSX Intermodal, I am proud to accept this esteemed award,” said CSXI President Jim Hertwig. “This illustrious honor reflects CSXI’s goal of delivering consistent, safe and reliable service to Landstar and its agents. We appreciate the continued recognition of our efforts, and we look forward to another successful year in 2010.”

“Landstar’s success is the result of the combined achievements in our independent agent family, Business Capacity Owners, employees and third-party capacity providers,” said Landstar Chairman, President and CEO Henry Gerkens. “We are pleased to honor our third-party capacity providers.”

The award was presented at Landstar’s Annual Convention in Orlando, Fla.
