CHANGES NEEDED IN PROCEDURES FOR SETTING FREIGHT-CAR RENTAL RATES

The per-diem rental rate one railroad pays another for using its freight cars is set by the Interstate Commerce Commission. The Commission revised its rules, regulations, and practices for freight-car per diem in August 1977. The Commission should go further by: Discontinuing the higher incentive-per-diem rates paid for plain boxcars; Amending its regulations to allow incentive-per-diem funds currently being held to be spent for purposes that promote sound car-service practices, including the efficient utilization and distribution of cars.
