This study updates a previous study (February 1975) by utilizing 1974 data instead of 1973 data and by revising future forecasts to take into account the recent recession and a reduced rate of growth of the gross national product. The study confirms the basic marketing, operating and organizational recommendations contained in the previous study. Perhaps the greatest import of this study is the development for the first time in the railroad industry, of computerized profit and loss statements for intermodal operations by traffic lane and terminal. These statements were developed to serve as a basic tool in the management of Conrail intermodal operations at a level of profitability that would justify investment in, and expansion of, needed intermodal facilities and equipment.
