THE IMPORTANT ROLE OF RATE BUREAUS IN TRANSPORTATION

This first installment of a two-part series discusses the history, scope and function of rate bureaus in establishing prices, rules and general procedures in the regulated segment of the domestic transportation industry. The author sees the drive for drastic curtailing of rate bureau activities as based on a real misunderstanding of the function. He concludes that such bureaus provide essential administrative procedures that appear to be equitable to shippers and carriers in addition to assisting the ICC in its administration of the Interstate Commerce Act.
