  • Intermodal traffic second only to coal 1980: 3.0 million trailers and containers originated 2005: 11.7 million trailers and containers originated Double-stack container loads increasing, including expansion from the Midwest to the Eastern Seaboard advantage of 1 train with a crew of 2 hauling 200 containers versus 100 truck drivers and trucks hauling 100 double trailers Intermodal traffic second only to coal 1980: 3.0 million trailers and containers originated 2005: 11.7 million trailers and containers originated Double-stack container loads increasing, including expansion from the Midwest to the Eastern Seaboard advantage of 1 train with a crew of 2 hauling 200 containers versus 100 truck drivers and trucks hauling 100 double trailers Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), U.S. Department of Transportation Intermodal Traffic

  • INTERMODAL GROWTH: LOADINGS IN MILLIONS OF UNITS Source: Association of American Railroads, Railroad Facts
  • Slide 21
  • Freight Volumes Growing Faster than Passenger
  • Slide 22
  • Issues Facing the Industry
  • Slide 23
  • Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), U.S. Department of Transportation A Question of Congestion and Capacity Truck Freight Flows, All Commodities All truck types; highway freight density in tons Rail Freight Flows, All Commodities Rail freight density in tons
  • Slide 24
  • The Future Freight traffic is expected to double by 2020. Population growth and economic growth mean that the domestic transportation system will be further strained. Funding for expansion not identified. Environmental issues will slow increases in capacity.
  • Slide 25
  • Railroad Freight Growth 2003 - 2008 Rail ton-miles:3.0 % per year Rail intermodal units:4.9 % per year Rail tons carried:2.2 % per year Rail carloads1.9 % per year
  • Slide 26
  • Rail Capacity Growth Railroads are expanding workforces and infrastructure. Rate of expansion determined by profitability. Demand for intermodal and coal are the key factors. Railroads reluctant to invest speculatively will the demand be there in the future? Railroad profits do not justify rapid increases in capacity.
