Todd Tranausky discusses what could positively or negatively affect the outlook for rail freight.

This Q&A response from The FTR Experts came from our November State of Equipment Rail Quarterly Update. View the video and the key takeaways below.

 
Key Takeaways:

  • If service continues to deteriorate and trucking capacity expands, we could see slow improvement grow slower as freight moves from rail to truck.
  • Automotive rail freight could very well give the numbers a boost as production ramps up.
