This report documents an analysis of transportation costs for vendor source shipments. This analysis examined the charges to move supplies throughout the Continental United States using surface freight modes of transportation. Data were obtained from the Freight Information System for FY 84, and the Military Traffic Management Commands Mileage Data File. Comparisons were made to the actual first destination transportation costs and the transportation cost that might be realized using carrier rates associated with the Guaranteed Traffic Program. These comparisons determined the primary savings achieved by DLA using this program, the average savings based upon alternate carrier rates, and the savings using this program for various shipment weight categories. This analysis identifies to DLAs Supply Operations directorate the potential primary dollar savings made possible by the Guaranteed Traffic Program. This analysis also determines regional costs trends and possible rate modifications for future carrier solicitations for the Guaranteed Traffic Program.
