Western Logistics and Planning

The Western Logistics and Planning Committee (Western L&P) provides relevant education and historical and current context of industry challenges. This important mission is accomplished by providing a legal forum for discussion and communication among all industry stakeholders. Historically, NCTA is pleased to have successfully fostered discussion and resolution during periods of growth, disruption, and challenge for the entire industry. The Western L&P Committee continues this important work to improve efficiencies and communication among transportation entities, producers, and consumers.

The participation of the Western Class I railroads and other transportation entities are integral to these meetings. Their reporting on rail performance and maintenance-of-way plans is greatly appreciated at every meeting.
