CSX reports stable metrics CSX

One day prior to a hearing before the Surface Transportation Board on its recent service problems, CSX on Oct. 10 posted its weekly metrics report to the STB on its website. The report, CSX said, shows that “network performance has recovered and is continuing to improve.”

“Dwell is lower than 2016, as well as Q1 and Q2 2017 averages,” CSX said. “Velocity performance is at its best level since June, with both velocity and transit on a similar trend to April 2017’s strong progression. Terminal dwell has declined to 10.7 hours, also a 4% improvement from [the prior] week. Average velocity was 15.7 mph, up 4% from the prior week. Crew and power resource levels remain well matched to demand. Right Car Right Train is stable. Hump yards are performing reliably and efficiently. Customer problem logs have returned to normal levels as performance has improved. Interchange volumes and performance are steady. Western terminals have recovered; secondary congestion has recovered as well. Empty car fulfillment is stable; demand is down modestly following a month-end surge. Local pull and place performance is stable.”
