The origin of the Fortune 500 Company dates back to the days of America’s first common carrier railroad. It was the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. This was in the late 1820s. However, in 1980, it undertook a partial merger of the Chessie System and Seaboard Coast Line Industries. In 1986, the company took over various railroads, which were part of the merger and became a single line known as CSX Transportation.
Together with its subsidiaries, the transportation company has its headquarters in Jacksonville, Florida, U.S.
CSX Corporation boasts a wide range of products in the country. It is one of the leading transportation suppliers in the nation, which offers rail-based and intermodal transportation services. Its network of about 21,000 route miles of the track serves 23 states, including the District of Columbia.
The company’s primary markets are in the eastern United States and additional access to Pacific ports ocean, river, and lake port terminals. It is listed on the NASDAQ market.
