    • 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.
