(a) Whenever the commission, after a hearing finds that the rates, fares, or charges
in force over two or more common carriers, between any two points in this state, are unjust, unreasonable, or excessive, or that no satisfactory through route
or joint rate, fare, or charge exists between such points, and that the public convenience
and necessity demand the establishment of such a through route and joint rate, fare,
or charge, the commission may order such common carriers to establish such through
route and may establish and fix a joint rate, fare, or charge which will be fair,
just, reasonable, and sufficient, to be charged and collected in the future, and the
terms and conditions under which such through route shall be operated. The commission may order that freight moving between such points shall be carried
by the common carriers participating in such through route and joint rate, without
being transferred from the originating cars.
(b) Subdivision (a) is not applicable to network railroad transportation.
