GREAT LAKES TRAFFIC AND COMPETITION STUDY. VOLUME 1 - EXECUTIVE REPORT
The overall program is designed to improve the capabilities and market share performance of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway systems. The study focuses on the traditional 19-State Great Lakes region, stratifying the States into high-, medium-, and split-penetration areas. To meet the primary objective, the study also creates domestic and international commodity flow data bases, identifies shipper/consignee routing criteria, and examines the impact of least-cost competition and market/institutional factors (stimuli) on market share.
