“Norfolk Southern works with communities to help them understand the transportation needs of a prospective industry. Our goal with customers is to work with them to ensure that the rail infrastructure is sized and configured to make them successful.” ~Jason Reiner, Assistant VP, Industrial Development

Norfolk Southern promotes the economic health of communities by working with industries and state and local economic development officials to identify and market suitable rail-served sites for manufacturing and distribution facilities.

In 2014, the railroad’s Industrial Development Department helped locate 72 new and expand 22 existing industries in 18 states along Norfolk Southern rail lines. That represents $5.7 billion in customer investment, which is expected to create more than 4,420 new customer jobs and generate more than 205,000 carloads of new rail traffic annually.
