Abstract:

The report analyzes the division of coal traffic between rail and waterway modes in the upper Ohio region by means of discriminant analysis. Characteristics which explain choice of mode include annual and average shipment size, transport time and distance, transport rate, handling costs, and transport cost by alternative mode. A demand schedule for waterway transportation of coal was estimated on the basis of competitive conditions observed in 1969. Author
