ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the word "tariff" related to the transportation industry. Tariffs ruled surface transportation for practically a century. Today the legal situation relating to the word tariff has greatly changed. For most motor carrier charges today the word tariff has no legal meaning or enforceable impact. With the statutory changes over the years, the only motor carrier tariff requirements existing at present are for household goods movements and something called "noncontiguous domestic trade," meaning shipments that go between the mainland and places such as Hawaii or Puerto Rico.
