Discriminatory Freight Rates--The Cause and Suggested Remedy

Record #:
An investigation by the Transportation Board of Investigation and Research has found that there are existing regional differences in class freight rates and they were not justified in differences in cost of rendering services to various regions, composition of traffic, or any other conditions. It has been suggested that given the similarities, the country as a whole establish a uniform classification of freight and scale of class rates for transportation by railroad.
