The Structure of the Milk Hauling industry in New York and Pennsylvania
Erba, Eric M.; Pratt, James E.; Wasserman, Walter
A survey of the milk haulers in New York and Pennsylvania was conducted to assess the changes in the northeast milk hauling industry since 1981. Detailed information was collected on characteristics of the hauling businesses as well as the equipment operated. Some of the general topics discussed include the number of hauling businesses, the size of hauling businesses, and the cost of milk hauling equipment. To address the subject of hauling efficiency, a section describing common measures of efficiency is included. Where possible, comparisons have been made to statistics obtained from a similar study completed in 1981.
