CAPTIVE UTILIZATION

The National Railway Utilization Company has developed a high usage of a 735 car fleet by a system it calls "captive utilization". National Railway examines the shipping patterns of several companies that have product compatibility. A routing is then established among the companies that allows maximum utilization of the box cars. Presently, National Railway operates 20 captive utilization cycles and more are planned when equipment becomes available.
