Roy Blanchard provides general management, marketing, and strategic planning support for shortline railroads. A happy extension of this work is a rapidly-expanding portfolio of projects assisting rail transportation users in commercial and technical matters from rate negotiation and sidetrack construction to demurrage management and supply chain support.

Blanchard publishes The Railroad Week in Review, an electronic compendium of railroad industry news analysis and comment. He is also a Railway Age Contributing Editor and for 15 years wrote a semimonthly column on industry best practices in addition to occasional feature articles.

Blanchard enjoys long-standing personal relationships with the senior management teams of the North American Class I railroads. With a behind-the-scenes understanding of Class I commercial, operating, and financial goals Blanchard has been particularly effective in creating strategic partnerships between his clients and their Class I connections.
