THE INTERMODAL PRICING BEHAVIOR EXPECTATIONS UNDER REDUCED REGULATION

It is concluded that competitive intermodal pricing practices under substantially lessened regulatory constraints are essentially devoid of ruinously competitive or predatory aspects. The entry-limit pricing of similar situations in the past might indicate otherwise, but now, says the author, pricing behavior can result in more efficient allocation and utilization of resources in the transport sector. He notes that the lack of historical models which incorporate advances available to economics in the past 15 years produced expectations of competitive pricing detrimental to some or all the competitors and consumers of transport services.
