And a Panel Discussion on PSR:
The railroads are in the midst of a revolutionary change, implementing what is termed “Precision Scheduled Railroading” or “PSR”. The results so far have been mixed – improved profitability but substantially lower volume. Is a new “leaner, better and more muscular” railroad system being created, or are the railroads cutting muscle and bone to create short term gains but at the expense of long-term performance? How much of the current volume drops are due to PSR versus other economic and market forces? And what does it all mean to the railroad’s customers?
Join us and the following panelists for a lively discussion …

Norfolk Southern Corp.

Chief Operating Officer

Director Sales & Marketing
