CARLOAD WAYBILL STATISTICS. BASED ON A SAMPLE OF WAYBILLS FOR TERMINATIONS IN THE YEAR 1976. TERRITORIAL DISTRIBUTION, TRAFFIC AND REVENUE BY COMMODITY CLASSES

The statistics have been compiled from a sample of audited revenue waybills submitted to the FRA by 76 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 1976 were derived from a total of 136,153 waybills, 44,065 EM-5 documents and 882 multiple car statement documents resulting in 202,924 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 or terminating in Mexico and Canada.
