PLANT SITING IN METROPOLITAN CHICAGO- ITS MEANING FOR MOTOR CARRIER COST AND SERVICE

THE STUDY DETERMINED WHAT COST AND SERVICE ADVANTAGES EXISTED IN TRUCK TRANSPORTATION FOR THE INDUSTRIES LOCATED WITHIN THE CHICAGO COMMERCIAL ZONE AS OPPOSED TO THOSE OUTSIDE THIS ZONE BUT WITHIN THE CHICAGO SMSA. THE STUDY REVEALED SOME MINOR DIFFERENCES IN RATES AND SERVICES PROVIDED BY COMMON CARRIER TRUCKERS BETWEEN THE ZONES. HOWEVER, THE SERVICE DIFFERENCE WAS SMALL ENOUGH TO BE OF RELATIVELY LITTLE SIGNIFICANCE IN A LOCATIONAL DECISION.
