The grant study evalutes the importance of transportation charges for virgin and competing secondary materials in the investment decisions of the steel and papermaking industries. Three major modes of transport are considered- rail, motor carrier, and inland water barge. Transportation charges are evaluated with respect to revenues generated for carriers. Comparisons of differences in charges are made on both a direct and a chemical-equivalent basis. The report provides substantial empirical data on transportation rates, volume of shipments, and origin and destination for the selected materials. (Modified author abstract)
