IS IT PRIVATE CARRIAGE OR IS IT FOR-HIRE TRANSPORTATION

Private carriers are the subject of above-average attention these days in the transportation field. They are the object of much discussion by the rail and water carriers as well as the highway for-hire carriers. Why is there such a cacophony of voices decrying private carriage today. Of course, some of it springs from competitive forces, from pocketbook philosophy. Most of it comes from a misunderstanding of what constitutes private carriage and also from a basic appreciation of the contributions which private carriers make to the whole transportation system. We must try to explain the background for these misconceptions.
