Thompson Hine's Moreno gives shipper's perspective on rail infrastructure, rate issues

While the U.S. freight railroad industry is pushing Congress to allocate more money for infrastructure improvements, it is also facing criticism for charging shippers unreasonably high rates. During today's OnPoint, Jeff Moreno, a partner in the transportation group of Thompson Hine, gives the shipper's perspective on some of the biggest issues facing the rail industry, including infrastructure improvements, capacity and rate increases. In his practice, Moreno has represented large and small shipper interests, including DuPont. He discusses the key policy decisions that will be made on transportation infrastructure in the coming months and gives his take on whether or not railroads can keep pace with rising demand.
