Under the new program, the two will provide customers with access to more than 20,000 containers and more than 600 service lanes. Umax officially launches March 29, 2010.
"Umax will offer extensive market access and expanded capacity across a nationwide intermodal network," said John Kaiser, Union Pacific vice president and general manager for intermodal. "Union Pacific and CSX Intermodal are committed to delivering market-competitive service and value to our customers, providing truck-competitive schedules that maximize the benefits and efficiencies of rail intermodal."
Other features of the program include ramp-to-ramp and door-to-door service; web-based container reservations and billing; and access to 20,000 53-foot containers.
Umax will replace the separate programs CSX Intermodal and Union Pacific offer customers today for CSXI-UP interline service.
