Best Intermodal Month Ever

October Railcar Report

What a road we have walked. While the world will never be the same, maybe, just maybe, railcar loadings will be. October was the most positive month for railcar loadings since pre pandemic. Total average railcars loaded per week were 228,193 in October 2020. Excluding coal, loadings were 168,611, just -1.2% off from October last year. Exclude energy related loadings like frac sand and petroleum products, and non coal car loadings actually eclipsed October 2019. Even better Intermodal car loads were up 10% over October 2019 (Green chart below).
