SEA-LAND SERVICE TO MOVE CERTAIN OPERATIONS TO TEXAS

 SEA-LAND SERVICE TO MOVE CERTAIN OPERATIONS TO TEXAS
 EDISON, N.J., April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Sea-Land Service Inc. said


today that certain documentation and administrative tasks now carried out at port terminals and other locations will be moved to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area in coming months.
 In a memo to all Sea-Land associates issued today, John P. Clancey, president and chief executive officer, emphasized that these actions are being taken to meet customer requirements for increased efficiency. "Over the past several years," Clancey noted, "Sea-Land has grown rapidly. To meet the increasing demands of our customers requires that we standardize and streamline our systems, rating, billing, documentation and other administrative processes and cope with far greater volumes of work more efficiently. We need to be easier to deal with as we strive to become the carrier of choice of our customer base.
 "Recognizing that the need to improve efficiency is a constant and ongoing challenge," Clancey added, "we are convinced that Sea-Land's information processing capabilities should be focused on functions that ensure that these 'moments of truth' are responsive to our customers' needs. Our information resources capabilities now provide Sea-Land with a clear-cut competitive advantage. I'm sure we can build on this strength by developing new systems which improve response time and reduce paperwork," he said.
 The company expects that approximately 300 positions at port and office locations in the United States will be eliminated, but a substantial number of personnel will be added in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, where some administrative work is now being done. This is also the site of Sea-Land's Transportation Operations Group, which is responsible for intermodal activity and equipment deployment worldwide.
 Sea-Land Service Inc., a unit of CSX Corporation (NYSE: CSX), Richmond, Va., is a world leader in international intermodal freight transportation and related trade services. Sea-Land operates more than 80 container ships and 145,000 containers in U.S. and foreign trade and serves 100 ports in 70 countries and territories around the world.
