Earlier today, the United States Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Economic Analysis released its second estimate for first quarter real gross domestic product (GDP), which checked in at 1.9 percent. This is short of the fourth quarter’s 3.0 percent and also short of the advance estimate for the first quarter, which was 2.2 percent.

There is a growing sense of optimism for the upcoming peak season. This could be viewed with skeptical eyes by many freight industry transportation stakeholders, given that a real peak has truly failed to materialize in a meaningful way for at least four years running, if not more.

Positive signs regarding the economy remain intact with today’s news from the Department of Commerce which indicated that fourth quarter GDP was up at an annual rate of 3.0 percent.

While the economic recovery has had its fair share of stops and starts, it may be happening again in earnest on the railways. That is the consensus from John Lanigan, executive vice president and chief marketing officer at BNSF Railway.

Earlier today, the Department of Commerce announced that U.S. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) rose by 2.5 percent in the third quarter. This is a good sign but it should not even begin to suggest that happy days are here again.

The news regarding a tepid economic recovery is clearly far from new, we have been reading about it and experiencing it in one way or another for a while now. We have been told that things will be better “soon” on more than one occasion, yet things continue to stagnate.
