Fortune magazine has named CSX as one of the 333 companies on its annual “World’s Most Admired Companies” list.

CSX was ranked with five other companies in the trucking, transportation and logistics category at No. 6. Also on the list were Union Pacific, Maersk Group, Ryder System, J.B. Hunt Transport Services, and C.H. Robinson Worldwide.

The list was compiled with the help of consulting firm Korn Ferry, which surveyed some 3,700 executives, directors and analysts to rate enterprises in their own industry on nine criteria—from investment value and quality of management and products to social responsibility and ability to attract talent.

The 1,500 companies survived were from the Fortune Global 500 data base with annual revenues of $10 billion or more.
