Railroad company this year recognizes 53 customers with Chemical Safety Excellence awards for outstanding dedication to safe hazmat transportation

CSX recently honored 53 customers with Chemical Safety Excellence awards for their outstanding dedication to the safe transportation of hazardous materials throughout 2023.

The railroad company has celebrated its chemical customers’ commitment to safety with this award for 30 years. The longevity highlights the essential role they play in protecting CSX employees and communities and reinforces the position of rail as the safest mode for transporting chemicals over land, CSX said.

“The customers recognized with a CSX Chemical safety Excellence award represent a wide range of industry segments and product lines,” Kevin Boone, CSX executive vice president and chief commercial officer, said in a news release. “Ensuring the safety and well-being of our employees, the public, and the environment is the primary goal of every interaction CSX has with our customers.

“Collaborative partnerships with these customers greatly reduce risks and exponentially enhance overall safety, allowing us to continue to provide the best service product we can for our customers.”

To qualify for the award, a customer must have shipped a minimum of 600 carloads of hazardous materials within the calendar year without any non-accidental releases of regulated hazardous materials. In total, the 53 winners collectively shipped 144,640 carloads across the CSX network in 2023.

CSX recognized Cargill as a standout honoree for achieving 15 consecutive years of excellence. In addition, five-year milestone winners included Arkema, BP, Cornerstone Chemical Co., Dow Chemical, Heritage Environmental Services, Irving Oil, and Methanex Methanol.
