Will we see service disruption stemming from the railroad merger?

Todd Tranausky discusses the Canadian Pacific-Kansas City Southern merger and whether it will result in any service disruption.

This Q&A response from the FTR experts came from our April Rail Outlook (Carload + Intermodal) webinar. View the video and the key takeaways below. 

Key Takeaways:
  • PSR will alleviate some troubles but new geographies and new lines of business are just two issues that will cause problems during the merger. 
  • There are always integration issues with Class I railroad mergers, all that remains to be seen is if there will be more or less disruption than average.
