Potential Impact of a Rail Strike on the U.S. Economy 

Freight rail is critical to ACC’s members and chemical manufacturing. U.S. chemical manufacturers are one of the largest users of freight rail – shipping more than 33K carloads per week worth $2.8 billion. The expansion of U.S. chemical manufacturing means our transportation needs are growing. With announced investments of more than $200 billion and over 350 chemical manufacturing projects, we expect to add 200,000 railcar shipments per year by 2030.
