Todd Tranausky kicks off the Rail/Intermodal portion of the State of Freight with an update on carload.

This Q&A response from The FTR Experts came from our July State of Freight webinar. View the video and the key takeaways below.

Key Takeaways:
  • Carload traffic is stable over the last few months and has shown significant improvement starting in August 2020.
  • An off-setting effect of strong sectors and weak sectors has lead to carload hewing pretty close to its 5-year average.
