Schneider, Pacer Sign New Rail Agreements

Bruce Harmon/Trans Pixs
Schneider National and Pacer International have announced new intermodal agreements with rail carriers.

Trucking and logistics provider Schneider National said it igned a multi-year renewal of its intermodal service agreement with BNSF Railway, which has been Schneider’s primary Western rail provider since 2008.

Schneider also said BNSF has invested $3.9 billion this year to improve its rail network, including the development of a new intermodal facility in the Kansas City area.

In addition to BNSF Railway in the West, Schneider provides intermodal coverage in the East with CSX as well as Canadian and Mexican border crossings with CN and Kansas City Southern.

Pacer, a transportation and logistics provider, said it has entered into a new multi-year deal with CSX, its primary rail carrier in the eastern United States.

“We expect this new agreement will provide the foundation to increase our volumes on CSX, particularly east-to-east shipments,” Pacer CEO Dan Avramovich said in a statement.

CSX and Pacer said their relationship dates back to 1999.
