Agenda:

    Rising demand for agriculture and energy-related commodities (ex-coal) is driving new business in the short line railroad sector, and leading to the reintegration of some short lines back into the Class 1 rail companies from which they came. Roy Blanchard, Principal at short line management consultancy The Blanchard Company, will discuss short line market dynamics, key success factors and provide guidelines for the critical evaluation of short line financial health. Talking Points: • Key markets for commodities by origin and destination • Why Class I rails might buy back or terminate leases of short lines they created • Short line competitiveness versus trucking • Demand and pricing trends • A critical look at short line financial and operating practices IMPORTANT To participate, attendees must have pre-registered on the GLG Research Management Platform (RMP) prior to 5:00 PM EST/2:00 PM PST on Wednesday, February 6, 2013.
