Has Precision Scheduled Railroading made good on its promised improvements?

Posted by The FTR Experts on Jul 21, 2021 12:55:50 PM

Eric Starks and Todd Tranausky discuss what PSR has set out to achieve and which of those goals it has fulfilled.

This Q&A response from the FTR Experts came from our May webinar "North America's Recovery Runs Through Rail." View the video and the key takeaways below. 

 
Key Takeaways:
  • The promise that PSR would create an equipment dividend for shippers, that less equipment would be needed due to faster cycle times, has not yet materialized.
  • While dwell times are down, but as facilities' days of service have been reduced cars are still dwelling unreported at origin or destination.
