Urban freight transport and market power

Markedsmakt i bylogistikkmarkedet

The authors use data on businesses that operate in the freight transport, forwarding, and national postal services industry to examine whether or not – or to what degree – there is market power in urban transport markets. Market power, i.e., represented as other market forms than perfect competition, enables an adaptation with less efficiency where one produces at a lower output level. The market form will also determine how the market reacts to any measures and regulations that are implemented. The authors establish a set of criteria based on market theory, where four product segments, or submarkets, are assessed based on these market criteria. The authors find that there exists some form of market power in urban logistics, and the degree of market power varies over different segments.
