Abstract:

The report contains a survey of shipments utilizing the McCellan Kerr Arkansas-Verdigris Waterway and competing modes during 1971. Data on annual shipment quantity, usage shipment quantity, handling cost, tariff on each shipment, and transit time for origin to destination were analyzed by discriminant analysis. A demand schedule for water way traffic is estimated, reflecting the influence of competing modes.
