What is the current state of rail service?

Posted by Todd Tranausky on Jun 3, 2021 1:16:22 PM

Todd Tranausky discusses service's stability following a slew of weather-related issues.

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:
  • Service is stable. Despite weather issues and intermodal train speeds lower than in 2020, everything is essentially in line with the five-year average.
  • Dwell times tell a similar story, being above 2020 but well below the five-year average.
