PHYSICAL DISTRIBUTION MANAGEMENT VIEWS ON REGULATION ISSUES

Transportation policy has become an instrument of social policy which has evolved operationally to the present form of public regulation. The framework of federal regulatory statutes translates into an environmental framework that establishes institutional constraints upon the managerial decision making of both the carriers or selling systems, and the shippers and/or consignes who represent buying systems. Common carrier transportation is the most regulated of industries, and recently there has been considerable outcry favoring reduced regulation or even complete deregulation. /GMRL/
