REPORT ON JOINT CONFERENCE, ENO FOUNDATION BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND BOARD OF CONSULTANTS, OCTOBER 25 AND 26, 1979: PART II: MODAL PRODUCTION IMPROVEMENT AND RELATED ENERGY PROBLEMS

The different transportation modes emerged independently and must now cooperate to determine the role each should play in order to maximize productivity and stem inefficiencies, particularly that of automobile usage. If the transportation industry takes the initiative to increase and coordinate modal efficiency, there will be less need for regulation and government policies. A comparison of airline, motor, rail, and water productivities with that of the general economy is made by analyzing the factor components of each. The separate goals and problems of individual modes are indicated to underscore the need for better cooperation.
