Todd Tranausky takes a look at rail service's weak 2021 and our hopes going into the new year.

This Q&A response from The FTR Experts came from our December State of Freight - 2021 Lessons & Market Risks webinar. View the video and the key takeaways below.

Key Takeaways:
  • After starting 2021 well above the 5-year average, service has slumped and is now barely meeting it.
  • Weather disasters such as wildfires, floods, and February's winter event are one aspect of the slowdown in service.
