The agricultural industry moved a small step forward today: the Canadian government announced it will arm the industry with more timely data requirements in which to better evaluate the performance of our two national railways and the supply chain as a whole.
In many cases, data will be required from the railways on a weekly basis, as opposed to the quarterly reports now being provided by the railways. This list includes:
-- Weekly car orders placed by all companies
-- Weekly car orders accepted by railways
-- Weekly orders spotted for loading and weekly cancellations
-- Weekly cars in-transit
