Even in the lean economic times of recent years, the rail/intermodal markets did a better than average job of investing in their infrastructure compared to other modes—and that hard work appears to be paying off.

Today, the economy shows signs of improvement, and both carload and intermodal volumes are ticking up. In fact, rail and intermodal service providers are going to continue to turn up the heat on pricing gains even as some service levels remain below ideal levels.

In this webinar our panel will discuss the new service challenges facing rail/intermodal providers and offer practical advice for how shippers can keep efficiency high and costs down.

Attendees will better understand:

  • The current state of rail/intermodal services markets
  • What's driving rail carload and intermodal volumes?
  • What's behind the dip in rail service levels?
  • Where are rail/intermodal rates headed and why?
