JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 24, 2012

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --CSX Corporation today
announced that the INland Logistics Port in Kingsbury is Indiana's first
location to receive CSX's Select Site designation.

CSX's Select Sites program reviews manufacturing and distribution development
sites along the CSX network that can rapidly utilize freight rail service
based on their topography, rail and road layouts and other significant
characteristics.

INland Logistics Port-Kingsbury, which broke ground in September 2012, will
further enable the region to connect with the world by offering efficient and
environmentally-friendly freight transportation options to businesses located
there. The project will also help create new jobs and help area businesses
grow through indirect investment.

"Companies continue to seek development-ready sites, with reduced development
risk and better access to market, said Clark Robertson, CSX's assistant vice
president, regional development. The Select Site program recognizes these
corporate objectives.

We believe the INland Logistics Port will be an attractive option for
companies searching in the area for a home in the Kingsbury area" Robertson
said. "We are excited to add this industrial business park to a portfolio of
sites that we expect to compete well for new opportunities."

CSX introduced the Select Sites program in January to better help companies
find premier manufacturing properties in the eastern U.S. that feature easy
and reliable access to freight rail service. CSX partnered with The Austin
Company, a nationally-known site selection and certification consulting firm,
to screen candidate sites and assist communities with the application and
certification process.

To receive CSX Select Site designation, the location must meet a rigorous list
of criteria including infrastructure and utility availability, environmental
reviews, appropriate zoning and entitlement, air quality permitting, rail
serviceability, proximity to highways or interstates, and other attributes.
Once certified, the sites are also featured on a new user-friendly web portal
featuring press releases, promotional materials and direct marketing to site
selection professionals.

"The CSX Select Site program sets the standard for shovel-ready, rail-served
industrial sites," said Jonathan Gemmen, location consultant, The Austin
Company. "The program website provides the fundamental information that site
selectors need to short-list a specific property."

In addition to INland Logistics Port-Kingsbury, CSX identified five other
inaugural Select Site locations in Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky, and South
Carolina.
