Title: The Interline Service Design Problem: Definition, Objectives, Constraints, and Current Practice
 Presenting Author: Carl Van Dyke,President, MultiModal Applied Systems, Princeton NJ, United States,
Abstract: A large percentage of the freight traffic handled by most railways is received from, or delivered to, another railway. How these “interline movements” are structured and managed can have a major impact on both costs and service quality. A well defined methodology has evolved for analyzing these problems using computer-based analysis techniques, which will be explored in this discussion.
Title: Designing the Joint Service Product
 Presenting Author: Ron Griffith,United States,
Abstract: Railroads have historically routed interchange traffic according to either the gateways preferred by customers, or those specified in rate contracts. This narrative explores the industry response to the economic benefits of increasing equipment velocity as well as the need to improve service that have provided the impetus for recent joint-carrier cooperative service design initiatives.
Title: Class One Alliances as an Immediate Alternative to Merger
 Presenting Author: Natasha Zuraikat,United States,
Abstract: STB has ruled to put on hold class one railroads mergers since 1999. At that time alliances were introduced to facilitate the design of the joint service products and capture benefits of a merger without an actual merger. In this talk we will discuss how railroads price their joint product, create revenue division and some other aspects of the joint operations.
