RAW MATERIALS TRANSPORTATION COSTS AND THEIR INFLUENCE ON THE USE OF WASTEPAPER AND SCRAP IRON AND STEEL

The grant study evaluates the importance of transportation charges for virgin and competing secondary materials in the investment decisions of the steel and papermaking industries. Three major modes of transport are considered-rail, motor carrier, and inland water barge. Transportation charges are evaluated with respect to revenues generated for carriers. Comparisons of differences in changes are made on both a direct and a chemical-equivalent empirical data on transportation rates, volume of shipments, and origin and destination for the selected materials.
