“FTR is the gold standard when it comes to freight transportation understanding, analysis and forecasting. CSX has gained great benefits from our continued association with FTR, which includes subscriptions to FTR publications, in-person briefings of our top executives, and our participation in their world-class annual transportation conference. I highly recommend FTR to anyone with exposure to the North American freight transport system.”
Clarence Gooden, President, CSX
