In looking at the grain transportation system, it is useful to examine the system’s historical development. This development has been shaped by both economic forces and the institutional constraints provided by the important role of government regulation in the transportation industry. The effects of these two forces on the historical development of South Dakota’s grain transportation system are considered in the first section of this paper. Some of the economic characteristics of the transportation system are discussed in subsequent sections. Future prospects are presented in the final section.
