Todd Tranausky discusses what's ahead for rail carload.

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:
  • Carload should have a good year in 2022, but it won't maintain the same level of growth seen in 2021.
  • Economically sensitive freight will have even stronger growth rates than carload, showing continued strength in lumber, metals, etc.
