  • Abstract:
    Rail transportation is of vital

    importance to the state of

    Louisiana and is a key

    component of the state’s

    business infrastructure, supporting agricultural, petroleum, chemical, and manufacturing

    industries across the state. Short line (Class III) rail is defi ned as rail operations with

    revenues of $31.9 million or less and those handling terminal and switching operations.

    Short line rail operations function in tandem with larger regional (Class II) and national

    (Class I) rail operations. Class III rail operations are generally responsible for moving

    commodities from manufacturing sites to interchange points with Class I rail operations

    where they can be transported to transnational locations. While not as large as Class

    I and II operators, Class III operators play a crucial role in ensuring that goods and

    commodities are both shipped and received in a timely fashion.
