Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • Revenues include both revenue for transportation services and fuel surcharges. For the three months ended June 30, 2019, revenues increased 5% and carload/unit volumes remained flat, compared to the same period in 2018. For the six months ended June 30, 2019, revenues increased 5% and carload/unit volumes decreased 1%, compared to the same period in 2018. Revenues increased primarily due to growth in shipments related to Mexico energy reform, partially offset by service interruption at Lazaro Cardenas due to teacher protests in the first quarter 2019, which also affected volumes for certain commodity groups.
  • For the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, revenue per carload/unit increased by 4% and 5%, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2018, due to mix, higher fuel surcharge, and positive pricing impacts.
  • KCS’s fuel surcharges are a mechanism to adjust revenue based upon changes in fuel prices above fuel price thresholds set in KCS’s tariffs or contracts. Fuel surcharge revenue is calculated using a fuel price from a prior time period that can be up to 60 days earlier. In a period of volatile fuel prices or changing customer business mix, changes in fuel expense and fuel surcharge revenue may differ.
