“Although the COVID-19 pandemic has pushed back construction timelines, Eastern U.S. railroad CSX (NASDAQ: CSX) is forging ahead with the construction of two new intermodal terminals, one in Rocky Mount in eastern North Carolina and the other in North Baltimore in northwest Ohio.

CSX expects to complete construction of both the North Carolina project, known as the Carolina Connector or CCX, and the northwest Ohio project in early 2021.

CCX will be located on the CSX network and near the Triangle area of North Carolina, according to CSX’s environmental, social and governance sustainability report for 2019. The terminal will have three wide-span, zero-emission electric cranes with an annual lift capacity of 110,000 containers, CSX said. Container handling will be completely automatic, with operators remotely controlling the initial lift and final placement from inside the terminal building, CSX said in the report.”
