That grew.The railroads are in trouble today not because that needwas filled by others (cars, trucks, airplanes, and eventelephones) but because it was not filled by the railroadsthemselves. They let others take customers away fromthem because they assumed themselves to be in therailroad business rather than in the transportationbusiness. The reason they defined their industryincorrectly was that they were railroad oriented instead oftransportation oriented; they were product orientedinstead of customer oriented....”CC-BY @atreloar 5
