USE OF PRODUCTIVITY MEASURES IN TRANSPORTATION POLICY MAKING AND REGULATION

The report describes how productivity measures can be effectively utilized as guides in transportation policy making and regulation. The two primary uses of productivity measures examined include rate adjustment analysis and the establishment of guidelines for wage increases. Since these two uses are central to the focus of the report, specific procedures are presented to assist in the application of productivity measures. A secondary use, the use of productivity measures as internal control tools by individual carriers, is also investigated. Other topics include the current state-of-the-art and the definitional and conceptual problems involved in quantifying the major components of productivity measurement.
