  1. CSX’s new President and CEO, Joe Hinrichs, leads off Railway Age’s Next-Generation Freight Rail Conference. In a discussion with Editor-in-Chief William C. Vantuono, he’ll talk about the ONE CSX plan, which has mostly to do with the railroad’s employees and customers.

    Before joining CSX, Hinrichs served previously as President of Ford Motor Company’s automotive business—a major railroad customer. In that position, he led the company’s $160 billion global automotive operations, after having held the positions of President of Global Operations, President of the Americas, and President of Asia Pacific and Africa. Hinrichs has also served in executive roles in global manufacturing, materials planning and logistics.

    “It’s critical to engage the workforce to determine how to further advance the CSX operating model and better serve our customers and employees,” Hinrichs recently noted. “I spend a lot of time out in the field listening to the employees, getting to know our labor leaders, and understanding the best way to improve our service, deliver a better experience for our employees, and continue to strengthen overall business results.”

    Next-Generation Freight Rail takes place March 14, 2023, from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the Union League Club of Chicago. It’s a unique, timely opportunity to discuss the freight rail industry’s future with thought leaders, covering a broad variety of relevant, pressing issues, such as moving forward following a tough 2022, restoring customer confidence, growing market share, solidifying the industry’s role in the global supply chain, managing regulatory risks, and leveraging advanced technology.
