Why Is This Railroad Tracking Data Important?
It is useful for shippers to analyze and compare carload volume and market share data by railroad. For instance, along with other data points this can be an indication of how aggressive a carrier may be willing to be in their pricing relative to their competition. Therefore, this is an important step when preparing for rail rate negotiations. These performance charts are an example of the type of reporting that is included in our railcar management software. Notice that these charts can be filtered on the fly and downloaded in various formats.
