FREIGHT TRANSPORTATION ISSUES IN SOUTHWESTERN PENNSYLVANIA: A SURVEY OF MANUFACTURERS AND TRANSPORTATION SERVICE PROVIDERS

In October 1995 the Southwestern Pennsylvania Regional Planning Commission (SPRPC) initiated a broad based survey of freight transportation users and service providers in the nine-county southwestern Pennsylvania region. The goal of the survey was to provide SPRPC a better understanding of the mobility and accessibility issues of the region's freight intermodal transportation system. The survey was mailed to 1500 companies -- 700 freight service providers and 800 area manufacturers. The survey identified a number of issues facing the freight transportation community in southwestern Pennsylvania. This report communicates the results of the survey and its analysis.
