Understand The Effect of Freight Shift from Rail to Truck With Statistically Quantifiable Data

It is widely believed that rail freight traffic benefits from the superior fuel efficiency of rail when compared to truck. It follows that, when fuel prices fall, as they have recently, traffic should shift towards truck since its costs should fall more rapidly than rail.

This presentation by expert speaker Noel Perry will address the potential magnitudes of such shifts looking at 2015 and the years beyond. He will present statistically quantifiable data to discuss the effect of shifts in freight from rail to trucks.

By attending this event, you will come away with a statistically solid quantification rail/truck modal share history and the major influences on those share changes. You will see quantification of fuel costs for both modes before and after fuel price changes. Importantly, the analysis will highlight conditions in the specific segments where share change could occur.

Training Objective

During this session you'll understand:

  • The basics of truck/rail modal competition;
  • Influence of service, capacity and price on this competition;
  • Why fuel pricing is not a major determinant of modal share change;
  • Why rail intermodal service is a major determinant; and 
  • Comparison of these issues with the power of fuel costs.

Who should attend:

  • Professionals who buy, sell or invest in truckload or intermodal transport
  • Logistics and traffic managers from the carrier, shipper and 3PL communities
  • Traffic Managers
  • Distribution Managers
  • Supply Managers
  • Sales and Marketing Managers
