Ocean Transportation

America’s integrated transportation network of trains, trucks and barges carries 54 tons of goods and commodities for every American in a single year. This staggering haul contains the ingredients that are essential to the modern economy – and simply wouldn’t be possible without freight rail. Because of the strength and scale of America’s freight railroads, industries and companies across the nation – from paper mills to power plants and auto manufacturers – are able to serve 300 million Americans and reach thousands of markets around the world.
