Chugging along: Demand for rail transportation will increase as the labor market improves



Abstract

Rail Transportation in the US

Rail transportation has made a comeback over the past few years. Increased fuel efficiency, growing demand for bulk freight transportation and a lower carbon footprint have resulted in greater demand for the Rail Transportation industry's services. In the coming years, freight volume and demand for rail transportation will increase as the labor market improves, consumers spend more freely and inventories are rebuilt.

The Rail Transportation industry comprises companies that operate railroads across the United States. This includes large railroads (Class 1 railroads) and regional and local line-haul railroads that carry freight and passengers. This industry does not include scenic and sightseeing rail transportation, street railroads, commuter rail or rapid transit.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
