The service is also targeting other commodities heading to East Coast markets, such as cheese and frozen food, company officials said. Each train will carry the same amount of produce and perishable items that would be moved by more than 200 trucks, saving 100,000 gallons of diesel per total shipment.
In October 2006, CSX Transportation and Union Pacific began a produce unit train service from Wallula WA and Schenectady NY.
