POTENTIAL FUEL CONSERVATION MEASURES BY MOTOR CARRIERS IN THE INTERCITY FREIGHT MARKET. VOLUMES I AND II

The certification policies and practices of the motor carriers were analyzed, and the overall impact of these on the demand, supply and overall structure of the industry was assessed in an effort to determine the consequences of regulatory policy on energy efficiency. Volume I examines the energy impact of Federal economic regulation and summarizes the quantitative analysis of some proposed regulatory reforms for the motor carrier industry. Volume II contains Appendices which assemble useful information in the characteristics of demand for motor carrier transport, the operating characteristics and relationships of the different segments of the motor carrier industry, the role of regulation of operating authorities in the industry, specific factors affecting fuel usage by the motor carriers, and estimates of fuel savings resulting from proposed policy changes. /Author/
