Coronavirus latest: mandated lockdowns in Italy are impacting automotive output

US rail: tracking in the right direction

Rail transportation offers an efficient, reliable option for the distribution of finished vehicles, and in an age of increased concern over sustainability, it is also relatively environmentally friendly.
