BNSF Railway Reported Strong Carload Traffic Growth

Berkshire Hathaway-owned BNSF Railway (BRK.B) reported a 3.1% YoY increase in its rail traffic volume in week 47 due to strong carload traffic growth, which more than offset the weakness in intermodal units. The company reported rail traffic volumes of 187,426—compared to 181,826 units in the same week last year.
