Railcar Shortage Delivery Delays

While railcar bottlenecks are not an uncommon occurrence, the resulting vehicle delivery delays can affect your entire fleet strategy. This shortage is expected to continue further into 2019 as major automakers are actively searching for shipping alternatives and auxiliary lots with the goal of delivering vehicles as soon as possible.

ARI is providing this brief to explain the driving forces behind the delays, the measures that have been taken already by the OEMs in partnership with the rail industry and government agencies, and how we’ll continue to provide updates and support our clients as long as the shortage continues.
