Some characteristics of truck ownership in Australia

This paper presents estimates of the concentration of ownership and the geographic distribution of the Australian trucking fleet. The information has been produced as a by product of an exercise which generated a comprehensive list of firms providing road transport services, either for the carriage of their own products, or for sale to other firms. The absence of a comprehensive list of road freight operators has been a major problem for researchers in the road transport industry. The method described in this paper provides a quick and relatively inexpensive means of identifying the population of road transport operators which may be used as a base for sampling.
