FREIGHT TRANSPORTATION: A STUDY OF FEDERAL INTERMODAL OWNERSHIP POLICY

The railroad industry has not been allowed by the ICC to expand freely into other modes of transportation. In other words, no matter how willing the railroads were to become intermodal transportation companies, they were basically stymied by the ICC's interpretation of the existing transport legislation. Professor Lieb has carefully prepared an outstanding analysis of the federal government's policy toward intermodal ownership. The study is very adequately footnoted, so that it becomes a goldmine for researchers who wish to examine any aspect of intermodal ownership in more detail.
