Review - STB Publishes Reciprocal Switching NPRM

Yesterday, the Surface Transportation Board, responding in part to a 2011 petition by the National Industrial Transportation League (NITL), announced a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for “Reciprocal Switching For Inadequate Service”. The newly proposed regulations would provide a streamlined path for the prescription of a reciprocal switching agreement when service to a terminal-area shipper fails to meet any of three performance standards. 

Public Comments

The STB is soliciting public comments on the NPRM. Comments may be filed via the STB’s website {; Docket No. EP 711 (Sub-No. 2)}. Comments should be filed by October 23rd, 2023.
