FOR-HIRE TRUCKING SURVEY

INFORMATION ON ORIGINS AND DESTINATIONS OF SHIPMENTS, COMMODITIES CARRIED, WEIGHTS OF GOODS, AND REVENUES RECEIVED FROM THEIR TRANSPORT IS PRESENTED. A RANDOM SAMPLE OF CANADA'S FOR-HIRE TRUCKING FIRMS AND THEIR SHIPPING RECORDS WAS TAKEN. APPROXIMATELY 150,000 DOCUMENTS WERE SAMPLED FROM SOME 500 MOTOR CARRIER FIRMS, WHICH WERE CLASSIFIED BY TYPE OF OPERATION AND REGION. DATA WERE THEN USED TO ESTIMATE THE TOTAL INTER-CITY MOVEMENT OF GOODS TRANSPORTED BY THE FOR-HIRE MOTOR CARRIER INDUSTRY IN CANADA. DETAILS OF THE PRECEDURES USED IN THE SURVEY ARE OUTLINED, AND A GLOSSARY HAS BEEN APPENDIXED TO FACILITATE UNDERSTANDING OF THE SURVEY CONCEPTS AND METHODOLOGY. /RATAOC/
