THE REAL POTENTIAL OF CONTAINERIZATION
The firm establishment of containerization is seen as adding to highway traffic, rather than diminishing it. While motor carriers have generally been opposed to containers for domestic intermodal freight movements, it is to the advantage of rail and highway modes to adopt standard containers. In addition to social and economic factors favoring a compatible system of intermodal transportation, such a step may soon be a matter of survival for both the rail and highway modes.
