Statistics & Publications
AAR prepares weekly, quarterly and annual statistical reports providing comprehensive insight into the operations of North America's freight railroads. AAR members can access our publications catalog, covering many aspects of freight railroading from the latest economic statistics to the correct means of loading and securing various freight shipments and research reports from AAR's Transportation Technology Center, Inc. (TTCI). These publications offer economic, financial, policy and general statistical information, and can be purchased from our online catalog.
AAR members can download the reports for free, by clicking on the Member login in the upper right hand corner of the AAR homepage. Follow directions on Initial Members Page directing you to publications and available editions.
