DETERMINATION OF THE ECONOMIC ORDER QUANTITY UNDER THE CONDITION OF UNCERTAINTY

The agricultural cooperative plays an important role in most rural regions as a vendor and purchaser of commodities. It is a supplier of transportation services and also a substantial user. This study defines the role of the cooperative in transportation and investigates the potential for agricultural cooperatives to form the nucleus for a transportation company that would integrate the usage of all modes. It is suggested that some easing of the restrictions on regulated carriers to allow intermodal ownership and control could produce improvements in grain distribution patterns to the benefit of carriers, the public and the nation.
