11:35 EDTUNPUnion Pacific sees little improvement in coal shipments for remainder of Q2
On May 20, at the Wolfe Research Global Transportation Conference, Robert Knight, Jr., Executive Vice President-Finance and CFO of Union Pacific, stated that, with second quarter 2015 coal volumes down approximately 25% quarter-to-date versus last year, the company at this point does not expect to see much improvement in coal shipments for the remainder of the second quarter of 2015. Key volume drivers for coal continue to be the combination of low natural gas prices and mild weather conditions. Knight further noted that, as discussed on the company’s first quarter earnings release conference call, the company remains focused on re-aligning resources with demand to improve service and reduce costs. While progress is being made, the company expects the second quarter will still reflect the service and cost impacts of operating inefficiencies.
