SHIPPERS WARN OF SHIFT TO PRIVATE CARRIAGE

A Railway Age pool of shippers indicated that 12 of the 114 respondents expect a decline in their use of rail service, while 46 expect use of rail service to be about the same, and 56 expect a relative increase. Comments indicate that rising transportation costs and service inadequacies are to blame for diversions of traffic from railroads. Too many problems with rail service are cited by shippers moving to private carriage.
