NGFA asks STB to make freight rail rate challenges easier

The National Grain and Feed Association has asked the federal Surface Transportation Board to change its rules to make it easier for agricultural shippers to challenge unreasonable freight rail rates.

In a statement submitted to the agency, the NGFA said proposed changes fall “well short of achieving its state goal,” and called on the STB to undertake a more comprehensive review to make “further and more significant modifications.”
