CSX has a program, CSX Select Sites, offering customers an easy way to access certified, rail-ready properties for a variety of industrial uses.

The company invites interested parties to view its new web page with easy-to-use, GIS-enabledsearch features that show high-resolution views of topography, rail and road layouts, and other significant characteristics of each Select Site parcel.

Or click the “Customers” tab, then “New to CSX or Rail?” followed by “Regional Development.”

 To receive the CSX Select Site designation, the sites – from 100 to 1,000 acres – must meet a rigorous list of key criteria, including infrastructure and utility availability, environmental reviews, appropriate zoning and entitlement, air quality permitting, rail serviceability, proximity to highways or interstates and other attributes. CSX has partnered with The Austin Company, a nationally known site selection and certification consulting firm, to screen candidate sites and assist communities with the application and certification process

CSX welcomes inquiries about candidate sites from industrial property owners and economic development organizations. Thus far, five sites have been certified and 11 are in the certification process. Click on the “Have a Site?” button on the Select Site homepage to submit your property characteristics and request consideration for the Select Sites program. Designated CSX Select Sites will benefit from increased marketing exposure via the web site, press releases and promotion materials, and direct marketing to site selection professionals.
