The general objectives of the study reported on here were to identify the Intermodal railroad-truck (IRT) facilities and services available to manufacturers in Minnesota, the extent of use of IRT service by those manufacturers, the characteristics of the users, and the perceptions of users and nonusers about the service and its cost. The study concluded that IRT facilities and services are sufficiently available to Minnesota manufacturers and other shippers and receivers in the state, within the limits of IRT service regarding the location of origin and destination points and shipment size. Minnesota is probably served as well as any state is currently being served by IRT.
