Dixie Carriers, Inc. v. United States


No. 233


Argued March 27, 1956
Decided April 23, 1956
351 U.S. 56

APPEAL FROM THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS

Syllabus

On shipments of sulphur from mines near Galveston, Tex., to Danville, Ill., the railroads have established a joint all-rail rate which is lower than both the combination all-rail rate and the combination rail-barge rate; but they have refused to establish a joint rail-barge rate between the same points.

Held: such refusal constitutes a discrimination in rates between connecting lines prohibited by § 3(4) of the Interstate Commerce Act, and it is the duty of the Commission under § 307(d) to establish through routes and joint rates for rail-barge transportation in order to effectuate the National Transportation Policy that the Act be administered to preserve the "inherent advantages" of each form of transportation. Pp. 56-61.

129 F.Supp. 28 reversed.
