Abstract
The report summarizes a study that compared the transportation rates for competing secondary (scrap) and virgin materials in five industries: iron and steel, glass, paperboard, rubber, and aluminum products. The three major points researched in the study are: Whether rates are reasonable for each commodity; whether carriers discriminate against secondary materials in ratemaking to the benefit of the respective competing virgin materials; and the magnitude of the effect of transportation charges on commodity prices.
