Abstract
Modern long-haul tractor trailor units were introduced into the inventory of the Canadian Forces in the mid-to-late seventies. They began providing scheduled service within the Western, Central and Eastern zones of Canada. That service became known as the "Scheduled Road Freight Service" (SRFS). The aim of the study is to evaluate the break-even cost of operating the SRFS at 1 CFSD (Canadian Forces Supply Depot), and CFB (Canadian Forces Base) Downsview. The cost was compared with that proposed by a commercial trucking company. Sensitivity analysis was conducted using statistical analaysis (bootstrap technique).
