Railroads

As discussed above, the railroad industry is dominated by the Class I railroads, which earned 92% of all freight rail revenue in 2002. As such, the industry performance measures reported are dominated by those pertaining to Class I Railroads. The American Association of Railroads (AAR) serves as a clearinghouse for industry statistics. Statistics that also serve as performance measures include the following. Note that average length of haul and operating ratio, along with revenue and expenses measures, are used by other modes:

  • Average length of haul

  • Average tons per carload

  • Average tons per train

  • Carloads originated

  • Containers transported

  • Employees

  • Freight cars in service

  • Freight revenue

  • Freight revenue per ton-mile

  • Locomotives in service

  • Net income

  • Operating expense

  • Operating ratio

  • Operating revenue

  • Railroad market share

  • Return on average equity

  • Ton-miles of freight
