This study was designed to analyze the transportation factors involved in the movement of poultry and poultry products from origins in the North Central Region. The commodities were transported by two media-railroads and motor carriers. Because data currently published by private and public sources do not adequately nor accurately cover the factors analyzed in this report, it was necessary to work directly with the records of cooperating shippers and carriers. Until such time as public regulatory agencies or carrier associations require or encourage the reporting of this data by all carriers, this technique will continue to be necessary, if transportation elements of a marketing problem concerning individual commodities are to be seriously examined.
