Become a TRANSFLO Customer

Every shipment is unique and TRANSFLO will ensure the right processes are in place to transload your business safely and effectively. Contact us and we’ll put you in touch with an expert closest to you.

To get started, you will need to provide your Sales Manager with the following information: TRANSFLO terminal location, origin or destination, commodity, SDS, volume, car type and truck type.

Next Steps

Service Agreement

Once your product and handling requirements are verified, your Sales Manager will contact you with a TRANSFLO solution along with associated pricing, start-up fees and timing.

Apply for Credit

If you have never shipped with TRANSFLO or CSX, you must establish credit. Go to the credit application, select the TRANSFLO Transload option from the Rail Service dropdown, complete all of the remaining required fields and submit the form.

Arrange for Motor Carrier Services

TRANSFLO is motor carrier neutral, but your Sales Manager can give you suggestions if you need them. Your motor carrier must sign and return TRANSFLO’s Motor Carrier Access Agreement (PDF) before they can enter terminal property. (Instructions are included in the document.) Learn more

      Energy Surcharge

      If your product requires heat application services during the transloading process, an Energy Surcharge will be added to each associated invoice. For each hour your product requires heat, TRANSFLO generates an Energy Surcharge fee that will appear on each associated invoice. Specifically, for every $0.03 increase in the price of diesel fuel, an additional $0.50/hour surcharge will apply. The surcharge is indexed on the U.S. No. 2 Diesel Retail Sales by All Sellers, and is based on the January 1, 2007 diesel fuel rate ($2.58/gallon). The energy surcharge rate changes on the first day of each month, and is based on the prior Monday’s posting of the U.S DOE HDF Price.
