Page 61 - As Congress enacted separately stated ratemaking rules for each transport agency, it obviously intended that the rates of each such agency should be determined by us in each case according to the facts and circumstances attending the movement of the traffic by that agency. In other words, there appears no warrant for believing that rail rates, for example, should be held up to a particular level to preserve a motor-rate structure, or vice versa.
Page 567 - Act, the Commission, in determining whether a rate is lower than a reasonable minimum rate, shall consider the facts and circumstances attending the movement of the traffic by the carrier or carriers to which the rate is applicable. Rates of a carrier shall not be held up to a particular level to protect the traffic of any other mode of transportation, giving due consideration to the objectives of the National Transportation Policy declared in this Act.

Page 187 - Co., and others of less notoriety, but of great influence — to lower prices of their commodities, oftentimes below the cost of production in certain communities and sections where they had competition, with the intent to destroy and make unprofitable the business of their competitors, and with the ultimate purpose in view of thereby acquiring a monopoly in the particular locality or section in which the discriminating price is made.
Page 507 - Act, so administered as to recognize and preserve the Inherent advantages of each; to promote safe, adequate, economical, and efficient service and foster sound economic conditions in transportation and among the several carriers ; to encourage the establishment and maintenance of reasonable charges for transportation services, without unjust discriminations, undue preferences or advantages, or unfair or destructive competitive practices...
Page 155 - ... arbitrary action and keeping within statutory and constitutional limitations, just as in the case of maximum reasonable rates. Whether a rate is below a reasonable minimum depends on whether it yields a proper return ; whether the carrier would be better off from a net revenue standpoint with it than without it; whether it represents competition that is unduly destructive to a reasonable rate structure and the carriers; and whether it otherwise conforms to the national transportation policy and...
