The Georgia Port Authority's new Rapid Routes initiatives aim to use the speed offered by Norfolk Southern and CSX to attract businesses. The companies offer overnight service to Alabama, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina from the Port of Savannah. "Our streamlined operation means faster train turnover and more daily departures," said John Trent, senior director of strategic operations for GPA. "Combined, Norfolk Southern and CSX average 18 inbound and 18 outbound trains per week -- delivering more choices to reach inland markets."
