Intermodal volume on U.S. railroads rose 1.3% in June year-on-year, and last month's weekly average was the largest for any month ever recorded, according to the Association of American Railroads. "Intermodal rose in June for the 43rd consecutive month, setting a new volume record in the process," said John Gray, AAR senior vice president of policy and economics. "Generally, the fall is the peak period for intermodal, so it wouldn't be surprising if further intermodal records were set in the months ahead."
