Min Nea polls Lack of transportation equipment or inadequate transportation service Cost Low county elevator operators Abou $5 a million in 1969. Or. W Illiam la. Thompson head of the Industrial administration department and professor of transportation at Iowa state University Ames reported the Cost estimate to the mid America gov nors transportation Council tuesday. Thompson represented Iowa gov. Robert i. Ray at the meeting. Thompson said the extra costs to elevator operators resulted from the delay or failure to obtain transportation equipment of All types rail truck and Barge. The costs included penalties for delayed shipment additional interest paid while shipment was delayed spoilage due to inability to ship Grain in time and losses in Quality because Grain was stored on the ground when transportation was not available in addition elevators reported extra costs for the rental of additional storage extra handling cleaning and repairing transportation equipment losses of Grain in route due to faulty equipment and lost business because the elevator was unable to handle Grain when a customer wanted to sell Thompson said. The estimated costs of transportation problems were obtained in a partial Survey of Iowa s elevator operators conducted by or. C. Phillip Baumel of the Psi economics department. Gov. Ray arranged financing for the study through the Iowa development commission. The largest costs to elevators were interest expense on delayed shipments about $1.5 million and business lost because the elevator was full another $1.6 million. Other costs to elevators obtained in the Isi study included a More than $800,000 from physical losses in transit. Nearly half a million dollars from Quality losses while storing Grain on the ground. A about one third of a million dollars for cleaning and repairing equipment. Nearly a Quarter of a Mil lion dollars from Quality losses while storing Grain month ground. A about one third of a million dollars for cleaning and repairing equipment. Nearly a Quarter of a million dollars in penalties for delayed shipment. A More than $100,000 for Grade changes of Grain in transit. Thompson and Baumel report Iowa Grain shippers historically have had difficulty in obtaining Grain transportation at Harvest time. But the equipment shortage now has become continual rather than just seasonal they said. One of the major reasons for the equipment storage they note is the dramatic increase in the amount of Grain sold by Farmers. Train sales by Iowa Farmers increased from about 400 million bushels in 1960 to about 700 million bushels in 1969. At the same time the number of Railroad owned Box cars declined by 42 percent. While there has been an increase in covered Hopper rail cars with larger capacity the Supply of Grain carrying Railroad cars still has declined at a time when demand for rail services was increasing. A third Factor contributing to a shortage of transportation is a decrease in the availability of trucks. Rail rates on Grain movement have generally declined since 1965, making Long haul truck transportation less competitive in Grain movement. Consequently fewer truckers Are interested in moving Grain shippers report they occasionally have used substandard equipment such As Coal cars boarded up cattle cars and Leaky Box cars to move Grain but with losses in Quality and Quantity. Another alternative shippers use to ship Grain is to sell it to itinerant truckers who usually haul it out of the state and resell it. The Lac study indicated elevators sold about 35 million bushels of Corn in this manner in 1969. Almost 85 percent of the Corn sold to itinerant truckers moved to four states Missouri Nebraska Minnesota and Arkansas. Grain sales to itinerant truckers also were greatest in areas of the state where elevators reported the most transportation difficulty. The Kun study also revealed that extra costs due to transportation difficulties were relatively greater for larger elevators with 700,000 bushels of storage capacity or More. Costs also varied greatly throughout the state. Elevators located along the Missouri River South of Sioux City and in a 6-county heavy Grain surplus area entered around it. Dodge reported the largest costs averaging about $10,000 per elevator. Next largest Cost aver aging about $7, incurred by elevators in the remainder of the North Central part of the state. Elevators along the Mississippi River averaged around $1,000 in extra costs the lowest in the state. Statewide average costs due to transportation problems were slightly Over $6, Looper ele Vator. The isl study also showed that elevators within to Miles of the interstate Highway system were More successful in Selling Grain to itinerant truckers than those further away. While elevators close to the interstate have an advantage for this Type of marketing volume was Large enough at other elevators to indicate those More Distant from the interstate still can develop a Large truck Market for Grain the isl experts said will lift martial Law Iii Greece Athens a new Liberal measures and the lifting of martial Law Are to be announced by the greek military government within the next two weeks the English it language Athens news reported today. Quoting informed sources the paper said the measures will include restoration of articles of the Constitution still suspended by the 41-month-old regime.
