Todd Tranausky discusses what's happening now in the rail carload space.

This Q&A response from The FTR Experts came from our September State of Freight - Rail & Intermodal webinar. View the video and the key takeaways below.

Key Takeaways:
  • Carloads are about 30K lower each week than the typical expectation for this time of year.
  • While coal is a large part of these lower volumes, economically sensitive freight such as lumbers and metals makes up a third of it.
