  • North American traffic decreased 595 carloads, or 0.4%, and was negatively affected in January 2014 by extreme winter weather at most of G&W’s North American regions.
  • Australian traffic increased 1,152 carloads, or 6.5%, primarily due to increased iron ore and grain shipments.
  • Coal & coke traffic increased 1,604 carloads, or 5.9%, primarily due to increased steam coal shipments in G&W’s Ohio Valley Region.
  • Metallic ores traffic increased 1,604 carloads, or 31.6%, primarily due to increased iron ore shipments in G&W’s Australia Region.
  • Metals traffic decreased 1,215 carloads, or 8.4%, primarily due to decreased scrap steel shipments in G&W’s Southern Region.
  • All remaining traffic decreased by a net 1,436 carloads.


Historically, G&W has found that carload information may be indicative of freight revenues on its railroads, but may not be indicative of total revenues, operating expenses, operating income or net income. Car movements related to railcar switching, including activities at port terminals, are excluded from our carload information as the resulting revenues are classified as non-freight.
