CARLOAD WAYBILL STATISTICS BASED ON A SAMPLE OF WAYBILLS FOR TERMINATIONS IN THE YEAR 1974. TERRITORIAL DISTRIBUTION TRAFFIC AND REVENUE BY COMMODITY CLASSES
The statistics for this report have been compiled from a sample of audited revenue waybills submitted to the FRA by 77 railroads. The data regarding territorial distribution of railroad carload terminations have been compiled since 1972 utilizing a computer based Waybill Information Processing System (WIPS) developed under the direction of the Federal Railroad Administration. The statistics tabulated for 1974 were derived from a total of 150,692 waybills, 39,768 EM-5 documents and 1,248 multiple car statement documents resulting in 212,919 carloads. The waybill sample includes import, export, transit, rebilled, and piggyback (TOFC-trailer-on-flat-car) traffic. Excluded are shipments weighing less than 10,000 pounds and moving on less than carload rate or any quantity rates, and traffic originating in Mexico and Canada.
