Abstract

The model includes over 200 grain originating points to 67 domestic destinations and 15 export port areas and from the port areas to six overseas regions. Rail, barge and truck loadings are estimated (including combination movements) with and without waterway user-fees. Implied demand elasticities for barge travel are estimated. Significant shifts in shipment patterns take place depending on the location.-from Authors
