JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug. 7, 2013

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --CSX Corporation announced
today the purchase of the Eastern Associated Terminal in Tampa, Fla. from the
Ingram Barge Company. The phosphate export facility is adjacent to CSX
Transportation Inc.'s Rockport terminal on Tampa Bay, and the combined entity
will be called Rockport Terminals.

As a result of the acquisition, CSX added 12 new positions for terminal
operations to Rockport's current staff of 25. Shantel Johnson-Davis, who has
led CSX's phosphates sales and marketing efforts in Tampa, was appointed
assistant vice president and general manager – phosphates and fertilizers, and
will lead both commercial activities and operations at Rockport Terminals.

"Purchasing the Eastern terminal provides strategic long-term value for CSX,"
said Johnson-Davis. "We will leverage synergies of the two terminals to
better serve our customers and grow this important business."

Rockport Terminals are deep-water port facilities on Tampa Bay used for
exporting phosphate from Central Florida's Bone Valley mining region. These
facilities are located on more than 300 acres with over 25 miles of track,
warehousing and state of the art loading systems.

The footprint of the combined terminals allows for quick, scalable expansion,
and capacity for 1 million additional export tons. Johnson-Davis said that
Rockport Terminals will seek additional commodity export opportunities and add
import bulk business over time.

Approximately 300 CSX employees work in the Tampa Bay area, including train
crews, engineering employees and mechanical teams. Facilities include a major
classification yard and shops, an automobile distribution center and a
TRANSFLO transloading terminal.
