History Behind CSX

Founded in 1986, CSX has become the nation's top railroad transportation system. Based in Jacksonville, FL, CSX has a 21,000 mile network across 23 states in the U.S. The company stresses the importance and efficiency of intermodal transportation (the use of two different modes of transportation) to move fright faster.



CSX was the first transportation company to join the Environmental Protection Agency's Climate Leaders Program. CSX also implemented the “Trees for Tracks” program to plant one tree for each of the 21,000 miles of CSX track. The company believes in reducing their ecological footprint and addressing industry sustainability issues.


In 2014, CSX invested 2.4 billion dollars to solely the infrastructure of the rails. This ensured that employees were safe out in the field and the operations of the company were never jeopardized. After their 2014 investment, CSX was named leader in the employee safety industry.


CSX believes in supporting the American economy and staying globally competitive. On September 9th, 2011, CSX was officially added to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for their economic and sustainability endeavors. CSX is the only railroad company to be apart of the index.

Why Intern or Work at CSX?

With heavy emphasis on the environment and a concern for all their employees, I believe CSX is a company that cares for their employees, from corporate to field. Having lived in Jacksonville, I have experienced the overwhelming satisfaction from CSX corporate workers that live in my area. I also believe that CSX will provide a great insight as to whether I would like to further pursue a career in finance.
