  • About the Edition

    Extract: The objectives of this study are to (1) Develop a profile of the present transportation and handling system, (2) Evaluate service requirements for shippers, receivers, and products handled, (3) Develop a best estimate of total truck and piggyback operating costs between California and the major midwestern and northeastern markets, (4) Determine the transportation costs, service level, and volume that would offset the cost of owning or leasing and operating a private fleet of highway trucks and/or trailers for use in Trailer-On-Flatcar (TOFC) service, and (5) Develop an organizational structure to implement and manage a feasible, alternative, transportation system.
