The Surface Transportation Board yesterday announced the addition of Justin Broyles and Robert "Buck" Rogers to the board's Railroad-Shipper Transportation Advisory Council (RSTAC).
Broyles, who is executive vice president for commercial affairs at R. J. Corman Railroad Group, joins the council as a small-railroad representative. He has more than 20 years of railroad experience and has served in leadership roles in sales, construction and emergency response, among others.
Broyles is a proponent of continuous customer service improvement and the advancement of railroad technology, according to an STB press release.
Rogers, who is VP of petroleum and chemicals at CN, joins the council as a large-railroad representative. He leads a team focused on meeting the needs of petroleum and chemical customers. Rogers also has served in network operations, short- and long-term planning and sales roles.
"Both Justin and Buck have a wide range of railroad experience in areas of concern to the board," said STB 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."
RSTAC was established to advise the STB chairman, U.S. transportation secretary and Senate and House transportation committees on policy issues related to rail transportation.
The council focuses on issues of importance to small shippers and small railroads, including rail-car supply, rates, competition and procedures for addressing claims. The council is charged with developing private-sector mechanisms to identify, address and prevent obstacles to effective and efficient interstate transportation, STB officials said.
