Re: Shipping Coal - How Far?

Tony Thompson

JIm I believe back then all commodities traveled by a ton mile price.  So if A traveled 10 miles and B traveled 15 miles.  A would be cheaper for the same tonnage.  Then there is also the price of the coal and if it varied any.

     Not when the ICC was in charge. Maybe today.
