Precision Scheduled Railroading and an emphasis on asset optimization are putting immense pressure on the downstream and chemical industry. Operators must seriously improve the performance of their rail fleets in order protect their profits, taking a hard look at everything from fleet optimization and car cycle improvements to first mile / last mile – switching / loading performance. Effective coordination with Class 1 Carriers and local rail providers also play an essential role.
On September 16th, 2020, Argo held a one-hour webinar and Q&A session to discuss the current state of rail optimization in the times of Precision Scheduled Railroading, covering the following topics:
• The current commercial environment between Class 1 Rail and major customers
• The impact of Precision Scheduled Railroading on commercial relations and operations
• Petrochemical rail operations and fleet challenges
• The findings and results from recent improvement projects with one of the largest Downstream operators in North America
