Rail Connects American Businesses to the World

A stretch of railroad track on its own may not be all that impressive, but the vast network that blankets America serves as a lifeline to the rest of the world.

That’s because America’s freight railroads carry one-third of all U.S. exports on their journey to markets around the world. Our investments in an efficient intermodal system are opening doors overseas and helping American businesses compete—and win—in today’s global marketplace.
