UP Resuming Intermodal Service to Ohio Points

Union Pacific plans to reinstate several intermodal service lanes that it dropped last year, including lanes linking three Ohio cities.

The service lanes involve shipments that will be delivered in Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati by CSX and Norfolk Southern.

In dropping the service lanes earlier, UP had said they were low volume and the traffic generated by them could not efficiently be handled through steel wheel interchange in Chicago and other gateways.

The service lanes will be reinstated starting today (Feb. 1)

“As a result of Union Pacific’s Unified Plan 2020, and our objective of providing safe and reliable service products, we are pleased to inform you that Union Pacific will be opening a number of domestic interline lanes originating on Union Pacific and destined to various points in the Eastern United States,” UP said in a statement on its website.

The lanes to be served by CSX include: Brooklyn-Cleveland, City of Industry-Cleveland, City of Industry-Columbus, Lathrop-Cincinnati, Lathrop-Cleveland, Lathrop-Columbus, and Oakland-Cleveland.

Lanes to be served by NS include: Brooklyn-Cincinnati, City of Industry-Columbus, and Lathrop-Cincinnati.
