TRANSPORTING THE NATION'S COAL--A PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENT. REPORT TO THE SECRETARY OF TRANSPORTATION FROM THE COAL TRANSPORTATION TASK FORCE

For the next decade and beyond, moving the nation's coal will present a stern challenge to the U.S. Transportation system. The Coal Transportation Task Force report concentrates on three main objectives: (1) to undertake an assessment of the U.S. transportation system's ability to move the greatly increased coal volumes projected for the mid-1980's, (2) to identify any potential bottlenecks or problems in transporting coal between now and 1985, and (3) to make a preliminary evaluation of the post-1985 demands for coal movement and identify the problems likely to be encountered.
