CSX Transportation Inc., the railroad operation arm of CSX Corp., announced today that it will transfer the last remaining 350 headquarters jobs from Baltimore to Jacksonville, Fla.
The move will leave the city without a major railroad headquar
ters for the first time in 163 years.
However, many operations that support the railroad will continue to be based in Baltimore, according to Donna Rohrer, a spokeswoman for CSX Transportation.
The action is part of CSX's effort to be competitive in the 1990s, Rohrer said. This includes being more efficient and reducing its payroll,she said.
