CSX Carolina Connector Intermodal 

better connections make better deliveries 

The CSX Carolina Connector, also known as the CCX, is positioned to reach more than 5 million consumers within a 120-mile radius. Located just five miles off I-95 and 60 miles northwest of the state’s capital of Raleigh, the Carolina Connector is within a two-hour drive of the North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Georgia Ports. 

The CCX is located on an efficient, high-speed, high-capacity mainline rail route. The CCX provides convenient, east access to I-95 and features three wide-span, zero-emission electric cranes with a lift capacity of 110,000 containers per year. With remotely operated electric cranes, the CCX maximizes safe and efficient truck movement through the facility with CSX’s X-Gate technology, which automates the in-gate process, streamlines traffic flows, and automatically inspects loads leaving the facility. The new, state-of-the-art facility is built with security in mind, featuring berms, fences, and cameras to ensure cargo security. 

The CCX is situated in the midst of 5,000 acres of highly buildable land. With near terminal development sites available, businesses and industries have access to approximately half of the American buying-public, located within a 10-hour frame. Near the future I-87, and eight to 10 miles away from the CCX, is the Kingsboro Business Park. A shovel-ready site, Kingsboro was recently named the top megasite in North Carolina.
