The Reading Railroad has an organized approach to controlling loss and damage payouts which has seen their relation to gross freight revenues decline appreciably over the past decade. A two-man L&D prevention group works steadily with the railroad's approximately 6,850 online customers on proper loading and blocking techniques and on destination inspections to pinpoint problems. The prevention activity has support of top management and this is made known down throughout the supervisory and contract ranks.
