FREIGHT PIPELINE

Since the congestion of highways and streets is due to both passenger vehicles and freight traffic, reduction in either will serve to improve the effectiveness of the transportation system. The purpose of this paper is to present the arguments in favor of utilizing pipeline as a mode of transporting goods and materials between and within the cities. It attempts to synthesize the available information in a manner that will permit the evaluation of the role of the pipeline as a component of transportation systems.
