THE POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF RAILROAD FACILITY CONSOLIDATION
This report is one of a series on the topic of freight transportation in the Chicago metropolitan area. The purpose of these reports is to stimulate industry and government towards the development of long-range planning. The CATS staff is presently analyzing commodity movement within the Chicago region. One specific area of concern has been the corporate and community stake in planning for transportation land requirements. This paper focuses on the potential benefits to be derived from cooperative intercompany evaluation of facilities required for the efficient movement of commodities by rail.
