The Canadian Pacific Railway has started the change from paper tariffs to a microfilm system for all internal functions concerning rates and pricing. Internal use of microfiche is only the first phase in a campaign for wide acceptance of the new tariff system. The real economic impact of the microfiche won't be felt until other transportation modes make the jump. The advantages of microfiche over paper tariffs are numerous: lower production costs, less space requirement, faster and more economical mailing to customers, and ease of use.
