EFFECTIVE CARRIER MARKETING STRATEGIES: THE CASE OF THE RAILROADS

Railroad marketing should determine which services will maximize the profitability of rail operations involved in a given customer's logistics system. This paper offers insights into ways greater cooperation can be achieved between shippers and railroads. A discussion of results of a survey of shipper logistical needs and ways in which carriers currently do or potentially could respond is included.
