THE CHALLENGE OF RATE FREEDOM

Canada has relaxed rate regulation over two decades with the National Transportation Act of 1967 permitting free negotiation of freight rates between railroads and their customers and allowing changes of rates with virtually no regulatory constraint. The free competition was not easily accepted. Costing and marketing have become essential as railroads learn to be competitive and profitable through appreciation of elasticity of demand, need for providing total distribution services and determination of areas of transport where railroads can be competitive.
