INTEGRATED ROAD/RAIL SERVICES

Over the past eight years the author's company has been operating a road/rail integrated service with British Railways to obtain the best service and economic advantages present in such operation. It is noted that the service has been very successful from the standpoint of both economics and service. The nightly movement of 500 tons over a distance of 200 miles involves three men while it is estimated that an all-highway movement would require 35 men. The author stresses the importance of single-management control of the integrated operation.
