CSX is set to build a new $160M intermodal terminal in Edgecombe County, North Carolina.

The terminal, known as Carolina Connector, will transfer containerised cargo between trains and trucks and will initially process more than 260,000 containers annually,

North Carolina’s governor Pat McCrory said: “This historic project is part of our 25-year vision for transportation because it facilitates efficient and cost-effective movement of goods, which is critical for job creation and economic growth.

“The Carolina Connector will be a game-changer for our state’s economy, supporting North Carolina’s agriculture, ports and position as the Southeast’s No. 1 state for manufacturing jobs.”

During construction, the project is expected to create 300 short-term jobs in engineering, technical services and construction.

The terminal is expected to open in 2020 and create 1,500 jobs throughout North Carolina as a result of its operations.
