The freight economy is enjoying a robust 2018—and the rail and intermodal sectors are no exception. Both have seen healthy annual volume and pricing gains on a year-to-date basis as more shippers are adding these stalwart modes to their freight transportation mix.

However, it's not all roses on the nation's rails.

our panel will provide a comprehensive update on the current state of the rail/intermodal markets and offer an in-depth look at the pain points shippers have been experiencing, including the recent service challenges, capacity issues and rising rates.

Rail/intermodal shippers will gain a better understanding of:

  • Current rail/intermodal volume, productivity, revenue, and rates
  • Trends and challenges making a difference on the rails
  • Varying approaches to PSR (Precision Scheduled Railroading)
  • The impact of trade developments on rail/intermodal
