7 Business selection process Survey results Photo: Wisconsin State Historical Society 7

8 Determined rail oriented commodities Used commodity codes to search business database for business names and addresses Added businesses from a GIS/business database Added or deleted businesses based on meetings with local economic development officials 8

12 Survey Launch Survey mailed out November 2012 Open to any business in the 10-county study area Several businesses outside the study area, including some in four U.P. Michigan counties, also participated County economic development leaders and others actively promoted the survey 12

13 Survey Results Summarized by rail user and non-rail user responses Summarized by inbound and outbound freight types 13

14 Freight commodities and shipping volumes of all businesses were grouped together into best fit categories for inbound freight and outbound freight Unique commodities those reported by only one respondent were assigned to a broader category, to help maintain the confidentiality of the business s volume numbers 14

15 Leading inbound freight, by tonnage: Pulpwood Miscellaneous (assorted commodities too dissimilar to group into one category) Parts, components and raw materials Construction materials Other leading inbound freight, by board feet: Lumber Logs 15

16 Leading outbound freight, by tonnage: Raw forest products Construction materials Paper products, including lignin and pulp Pulpwood Other leading outbound freight, by board feet: Lumber Logs Wood products 16

17 Truck, rail, water, air what s the modal split? Why do businesses use rail? Why don t they? If an out-of-service rail line was reactivated, would businesses use it? 17

18 Some rail users might ship more freight by rail if certain changes were made to their service or the rail lines. How much more might they ship? 18

19 Other topics the survey covered: Freight origins and destinations Effect on non-rail users if they would use rail Effect on rail users if they lost rail Interest in intermodal facilities Suggestions for infrastructure improvements Opinions and perceptions 19

20 1) Share survey results with railroads, counties, municipalities, business associations, elected officials and other stakeholders 2) Contact businesses that have indicated an interest in rail service (follow-up interviews to determine the types of commodities, volume, and the frequency of service needed) 3) Create an inventory of existing rail spurs, rail yards and terminals (railroads as a possible source) 4) Explore the financial resources available to develop existing or new freight rail facilities 20

21 Rail service in Wisconsin County freight profiles (2007 figures) Study area freight profile Survey results and comments WisDOT and NRTC recommendations Resources Photo: Wisconsin State Historical Society 21
