Posted by Todd Tranausky on Jun 3, 2021 1:15:47 PM

Todd Tranausky discusses improvement in the carload sector.

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:
  • 2021 is on pace for rail carload's best year since 2018, showing huge improvement from a slump in 2019 and pandemic complications last year.
  • Economically-sensitive freight has not kept up with the rest of the carload market, but that will steadily improve as we move into 2022.
