CSX Corp. has designated Kingsboro Industrial Sites in Edgecombe County, N.C., as the first recipient in the state to be chosen as a “Select Site.”

Through the Select Sites program, CSX reviews manufacturing and distribution development sites along its network that could use freight-rail service. The designation confirms that standard land-use issues have been addressed and a site is ready for development.

“Through Select Sites, we can provide increased speed to market and lower up-front development risk for companies seeking industrial property for manufacturing operations,” said Clark Robertson, CSX’s assistant vice president of regional development, in a prepared statement.

CSX introduced the Select Sites program in January. The Class I partnered with site selection and certification consulting firm The Austin Co. to screen candidate sites, and assist communities with the application and certification process.

CSX previously certified six other locations in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio and South Carolina as Select Sites.
