"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.
