HIGHWAY SUBSIDIARIES STUDY
This report studies Conrail Corporation's trucking requirements and its growth opportunities in truck transportation. The operations of two highway subsidiaries Pennsylvania Truck Lines (PTL) owned by Penn Central Transportation Company and the Reading Transportation Company (RTC) owned by Reading Company were evaluated through use of interviews of key personnel, observation of facilities, and review of financial and operational performance. It recommends that CRC acquire PTL and RTC, enter the less than truckload market in the New York to Chicago lane, retrieve, if possible, New England Transportation, and undertake studies to blend truck-rail management.
