A STUDY OF THE EFFECTS OF INLAND FREIGHT RATES AND SERVICES ON THE ST. LAWRENCE SEAWAY

The report examines selected railroad rates on commodities moving from the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Seaway hinterland to Great Lakes, North Atlantic, and southern ports. A comparative analysis is made of rate and cost data for the sample regional commodity movements to determine if the existing rate structure is prejudicial to the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Seawater system. From the comparative data, conclusions are drawn concerning the Interstate Commerce Act. Alternative procedures are explored and recommended for appropriate relief from any disadvantages to seaway traffic.
