GWR’s European carloads

Genesee & Wyoming’s (GWR) European carloads remained unchanged YoY (year-over-year) in February 2017. During the same period of 2016, GWR hauled the same quantity of railcars. With the acquisition of Freightliner, GWR’s European operations assumed more significance. GWR’s other-than-coal carloads also remained unchanged in February 2017 on a YoY basis.

Commodity groups

GWR’s minerals and stone traffic rose by 651 carloads, or 6.2%, mainly on account of higher shipments in Poland. However, the company’s intermodal traffic fell by 858 carloads, or 1.2%.

For Genesee & Wyoming, the term “carload” represents physical railcars and the estimated railcar equivalents of commodities for which the company is paid. Genesee & Wyoming is often compared with class I railroads, as its operations span 75% of the US, parts of Canada, Australia, and some parts of Europe. Other US-based class I rail carriers include Norfolk Southern (NSC), CSX (CSX), Kansas City Southern (KSU), and Union Pacific (UNP).
