This article focuses on competition within trucking which is generally divided into a regulated segment and an unregulated segment primarily associated with transportation serving agriculture. The status and posture of the unregulated segment of trucking is described and the author contends that its suppression to protect regulated carriers violates economic principles of efficiency and contributes to cost inflation in all sectors of the economy. The efficiency problem is compounded by the rapidly growing role of trucking in agricultural marketing.
