The Surface Transportation Board today announced the addition of Justin Broyles and Robert (Buck) Rogers to the Board’s Railroad-Shipper Transportation Advisory Council (RSTAC).  Mr. Broyles joins as a small railroad representative, and Mr. Rogers joins as a large railroad representative.

Mr. Broyles is R.J. Corman Railroad Group’s executive vice president for commercial affairs.  He has more than 20 years of railroad experience and has served in many high-level leadership positions in sales, construction, emergency response, and others.  Mr. Broyles is a proponent of continuous customer service improvement and the advancement of railroad technology.

Mr. Rogers is vice president of petroleum and chemicals for Canadian National Railway Company.  He leads a team focused on working closely with petroleum and chemical customers to meet their needs effectively and safely.  Mr. Rogers has also served in various positions focused on network operations, short and long-term planning, and sales.

“Both Justin and Buck have a wide range of railroad experience in areas of concern to the Board,” said Chairman Martin Oberman.  “I am confident that their perspectives will be valuable to RSTAC, and I and the other Board members look forward to working with them as we work to ensure an efficient and viable rail network.”

The ICC Termination Act of 1995 established RSTAC to advise the Board’s Chairman, the Secretary of Transportation, the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, and the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure with respect to rail transportation policy issues RSTAC considers significant.  RSTAC focuses on issues of importance to small shippers and small railroads, including railcar supply, rates, competition, and procedures for addressing claims.  It is charged with developing private-sector mechanisms to identify, address, and prevent obstacles to effective and efficient interstate transportation.
