TRANSPORTATION CAPACITY: VOLUME V. OF STUDIES IN CAPITAL STOCK MEASURES FOR TRANSPORTATION

The study discusses the various theoretical concepts of transportation capacity and the possible policy applications and other uses of statistical measures of capacity and capacity utilization. In specific terms, absolute, normal operating and economic capacity measures are discussed and empirical measures are presented for the four major transportation modes of water, rail, air and motor freight. These measures are given for the period 1950-70. Some discussion is also presented on the uniqueness of transportation capacity relative to that of other industries.
