Clearly, the first will be in the rail intermodal area.

Oil and overall energy market consumption demand is perhaps second.  Even before the price war between Russia and Saudi Arabia was announced, there clearly were signs of a global decline in energy use because of disruptions overseas to manufacturing and other aspects of people and freight movement because of mandatory government isolation and related restrictions.
