Intermodal traffic rose 17.3% in September from a year ago, the Association of American Railroads said.

Intermodal traffic was 0.2% higher than two years earlier, AAR said Monday. Rail carloads were up 7.7% from a year ago but down 7.5% from September 2008.

“Intermodal traffic gains can be attributed to the upcoming holiday season and the number of railcars coming out of storage are not as significant as during the first few months of the year; all of which is evidence of a slow measured economic recovery,� AAR Senior Vice President John Gray said in a statement.

September is traditionally one of the highest-volume months of the year for intermodal as retailers begin to stock up for the holidays, the group said.
