SOME FACTORS TENDING TO INCREASE TRUCK COST IN THE TRI- STATE REGION AND CENTRAL CITIES

IN 1969 PICK-UP AND DELIVERY COSTS IN NEW YORK CITY WERE 69% HIGHER THAN FOR THE MID-ATLANTIC REGION AS A WHOLE. A FOUR ACRE REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT IN MANHATTAN DISPLACED SEVEN CARRIERS. IN THE ABSENCE OF SPACE AT COMPARABLE COST IN THE CITY, RELOCATION IN NEW JERSEY OR QUEENS WOULD INCREASE COMMERCIAL CARRIER COSTS BY 14 TO 38%. THE FOLLOWING ARE PRESENTED AS ALTERNATIVES: ACCEPTANCE OF RISING COSTS AND DECLINING SERVICE AS INEVITABLE; SUBSIDIZATION OF DISPLACED CARRIERS TO MAINTAIN SERVICE; DEVELOPMENT OF SPECIAL ZONING POLICY FOR TRUCKING; DEVELOPMENT OF A RELOCATION PROGRAM FOR TRUCKERS; DEVELOPMENT OF A SYSTEM OF CONSOLIDATED PICK-UP AND DELIVERY FOR LTL SHIPMENTS.
