Optimisation in the transport sector: a much neglected objective

Optimisation in transport evaluation problems is at present only attempted on a technical least cost basis. Three strata of transport optimisation are identifiable, regional, modal and technical, which provide a traditional framework for the development of more comprehensive optimisations. A rigorous approach to problem solving within these stratifications not only allows system analysis techniques to be applied to determine optimal solutions, but the formulation itself necessitates a clear statement of the objective and a cognizance of the broader implications of the problem and its solution.
