CSX outsources about 140 IT jobs


CSX has announced that it is outsourcing nearly 140 information technology jobs to an India-based company.

This comes two months after the company hired Stephen Fortune as executive vice president and chief digital and technology officer. Fortune’s previous experience was in chemical engineering and information technology in the oil and gas industry, and his most recent role was as chief information officer with the global BP group.

CSX outsources these IT jobs to Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a subsidiary of the Tata Group, based in Mumbai (formerly Bombay), India. TCS operates in 46 countries with 592,000 employees. The transition is expected to take approximately six months.

According to Jacksonville Daily Record, CSX said that TCS “will provide operation, maintenance and support services for CSX computer systems.” Additionally, CSX stated, “As a result of this change, 137 CSX technology employees in maintenance and support positions will leave CSX employment and many affected employees have the option to join TCS and continue to to provide support services to our business.

CSX also said that staying on top of technology advancements and changes is why the company decided to hire TCS. The Record further quoted CSX as saying, “This strategic move will ensure CSX remains a transportation industry leader in technology performance and innovation as we pursue our goals of safety, service, reliability and business growth.”
