The freight rail industry constantly faces volume fluctuations, more so in the case of oil cargo. The challenges are compounded by volatility in energy costs and variable levels of oil production. Increasing safety regulations for transporting oil by rail and the looming threat of price regulations are affecting oil production. This is encouraging industry players to optimize operating costs and improve margins. Companies are looking at third-party solution providers to bring in these benefits.
