Delivering America’s Economy

America’s freight railroads deliver the goods consumers want and the raw materials businesses need. Delivering for every sector of the U.S. economy, America’s freight railroads move 40 percent of intercity freight traffic — more than any other mode of freight transportation — and help power the nation’s economy. And freight rail, which moves 1/3 of U.S. exports to port, will be even more important to our future as the nation strives to double exports by 2015.
