1
Holistic focus on controlling supply chain costs
 Near-sourcing of manufacturing sites due to rising
costs in Asia
 Simplification and rebalancing of supply chain network
design
 Optimization software to improve efficiencies and
streamline processes
 Use of alternate transportation modes, including
intermodal

Truck capacity is imminent concern for future
Truck Capacity Utilization to Increase,
Resulting in a Shortage

Capacity Utilization
U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
reports driver supply is 185,000
below 2007 levels
Turnover for Q1 2012 was 90%,
the highest since 2008
CSA, HOS and other proposed
regulations
Aging driver base
Recovery of housing market
Intermodal provides scalable capacity

14 million loads moved in 2011
Access to key markets,
population centers
Connectivity to major U.S. ports
One train can move the load of
280 trucks
Intermodal industry volume has steadily grown

Intermodal offers sustainable savings
 Fuel efficiency and freight density drive cost savings
— Railroads are three times more fuel efficient than trucks
— One train can move the load of 280 trucks
 Higher fuel efficiency means lower greenhouse
emissions
— Intermodal reduces carbon footprint
— Moving freight by rail, instead of truck, reduces emissions by 75%
If 10% of long haul highway freight converted to rail…
Annual fuel consumption would decrease by 12 billion gallons, and
Annual greenhouse emissions would decrease by 12 million tons

 Highway-to-rail conversion still
in early stages
 Over 9 million loads in east
have conversion potential
 Intermodal conversion results
in additional capacity and cost
savings for shippers
