Abstract : The primary objective was to determine the motor carrier costs on a per mile basis for each Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) defense depot and to compare those costs across the defense depots. The study approach consisted of selecting appropriate shipping history records from the Freight Information System (FINS) file for the fiscal year 1985. This analysis identifies the motor carrier cost trends based on cost per hundred weight per mile. This analysis also determines a relative ranking of defense depots motor carrier cost based on costs per weight hundred per mile and the effects of minimum charges for less-than-truckload Guaranteed Traffic Program.
