Based in Jacksonville, Florida, CSX Corporation (CSX) has roots dating back to the early nineteenth century – starting in 1827 when the nation’s first common carrier was chartered between the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company. Today 30,000 plus employees are responsible for 21,000 route miles in 23 states with access to over 70 ocean, river and lake port terminals. Railroads remain as the low cost transportation option where no waterway connects the origin and destination of shipments.
