Oct. 21, 2014

Savage announced October 21 an agreement with CSX to provide locomotive fueling services at 30 sites across the CSX network in the eastern United States. CSX is a premier rail transportation supplier, with 21,000 route miles of track in 23 states, the District of Columbia, and Canada.

“We’re pleased that CSX selected us to handle their locomotive fueling services, building on our strong partnership and demonstrating confidence in our commitment to operational excellence and safety,” said Kirk Aubry, Savage president and chief operating officer. “Our goal is to deliver innovative solutions to our customers’ unique supply chain challenges. Our people, processes, and technology will ensure that CSX locomotives keep moving and arriving at their destinations on schedule.”

Prior to the new agreement, Savage had been providing locomotive fueling services at four CSX sites. Savage also provides transloading services—moving products between railcars and trucks—at 31 terminals across the company’s network.

Savage works with all Class I railroads in the United States and Canada, and is a single-source provider of safe, sustainable, and integrated rail supply chain services--including operations, switching, infrastructure engineering, construction, operation planning, fueling, track and railcar inspection and maintenance, training and technology. With expertise in first and last mile services, Savage owns or operates more than 55 rail terminals and railcar storage yards across North America. The company moves more than 40 million tons of materials in its 1,600-plus railcars annually.
