Most works dealing with the problem of carrier selection are directed toward the evaluation of alternative modes of transportation. In this article, the problem of carrier selection from within one mode is considered; this is accomplished by determining the relative importance of carrier selection determinants in the carrier selection situation in which the decision is made from one mode. The movement of household goods by industrial firms was the commodity movement chosen for study. In addition, attention is given to the nature of the carrier selection decision and to a review of carrier selection determinants revealed in previous works.
