ECONOMIC ANALYSIS OF INTERCITY FREIGHT TRANSPORTATION
Economic analysis of transportation problems, particularly in intercity freight transportation. Organized in two parts: efficient utilization and efficient expansion of transport capacity. Part one discusses the demand and supply of intercity freight transportation, efficiency criteria for pricing, and the economics of regulation. Part two, on efficient expansion, discusses transportation project identification and benefit-cost analysis. Stresses that before expansion is undertaken, capacity-enhancing prospects of changes in policy (e.g., care of airport at night), as well as addition or improvement of equipment, should be considered.
