THE ANALYSIS OF SHIPPER OPERATING POLICIES AND PRIVATE FREIGHT CAR UTILIZATION

To determine the practices of firms, which increasingly are buying or leasing fleets of freight cars, a study of large forest products companies in the Northwest was made. The problems of private car utilization differ in some respects from that of the railroads operating the general interchange fleet. Conclusions are drawn about the company practices and the effect which railroad practices can have on the utilization of such cars.
