Industry Study - Inhibitors to Rail Carload and Intermodal Market Share Growth
Fuel prices rose rapidly in the first half of 2008, culminating with U.S. diesel prices of $4.75/gallon in July. While high fuel prices should have favored rail freight transportation, rail did not gain share against truck in the first half of the year. To better understand why, Norbridge conducted a study of what was inhibiting a shift toward rail by major transportation buyers. The findings highlight barriers railroads need to overcome -- not only in an environment of high fuel costs.
