AGRICULTURAL TRUCKING IN THE POST RAIL FREIGHT SUBSIDY ERA: IMPLICATIONS FOR MANITOBA

The trucking industry is placing greater demands on Manitoba's highway and other supporting transportation infrastructure, as the railways withdraw from the market. The changes in the trucking industry have implications for the maintenance of highways and infrastructure provision policies. The purpose of this study is to establish the emerging pattern of agricultural trucking in Manitoba. The specific objectives of the study are: (1) to examine agricultural trends that influence farm trucking practices, and (2) to analyze trends in rural trucking practices of farmers and commercial service suppliers.
