(UP Reply 2–3; AAR Reply 3–6.) 5 AAR, CSXT, and UP contend, moreover, that the proposed regulations are unnecessary because carriers have sufficient incentives to move cars efficiently, as delayed cars hinder operations and reduce revenue. (CSXT Reply 3–4; UP Reply 7–8, Aug. 30, 2021; AAR Reply 8–9, Aug. 30, 2021.) They also argue that the proposed regulations will have a negative impact on the overall efficiency of the rail network by incentivizing carriers to move private freight cars inefficiently to avoid the charges and by reducing cooperation between carriers during periods of network stress. (CSXT Reply 6; UP Reply 9, Aug. 30, 2021; AAR Reply 16, Aug. 30, 2021.) Other respondents contend that the proposed regulations would provide appropriate financial incentives for Class I carriers to use private freight cars more efficiently, (NCTA Reply 1–2; PRFBA Reply 1; FRCA Reply 1), and offer reciprocity for demurrage charges (ISRI Reply 4; NACD Reply 1; AFPM Reply 2; COPA Reply 1– 2). Furthermore, Joint Shippers ask the Board to solicit comments on how the proposed regulations would be implemented, including whether carriers would be responsible for monitoring private freight car delays and crediting amounts owed under the proposed regulations against their demurrage invoices. (Joint Shippers Reply 5.) Petitioners’ proposal and the responses to date raise important issues of interest to the Board. Therefore, to further consider Petitioners’ proposal and the responses, the Board will open a proceeding. Procedures for further public comment will be established in a subsequent decision. It is ordered: 1. Petitioners’ motion for leave to file a surreply is granted. 2. Petitioners’ petition is granted to the extent that it requests that the Board open a proceeding. 3. Notice of this decision will be published in the Federal Register. 4. This decision is effective on its service date. Decided: November 22, 2021. By the Board, Board Members Begeman, Fuchs, Oberman, Primus, and Schultz. Eden Besera, Clearance Clerk.

It is important to know the person’s name and email address to respond and track the complaint. The FAA will not respond to the same complaint from the same person more than once.
