Impact of a Freight Network from Railway Freight Organizational Reforms
The study of the changes the Freight Organizational Reforms brings to the freight demand network are important for development of railway freight traffic as it is the most source of income. This paper presents the changes through the demand network. Firstly, the collected data is used to analysis the demand of the transport market changes. This is one of the important reasons for the implementation of Freight Organizational Reforms. Secondly, by constructing virtual transport network, the differences are analyzed about the changes that transportation reforms have brought. The freight transportation reform loses the requirements of goods transport. This makes the origins and destinations of goods on the network become diverse. Accompanied by the reform, the flow and volume of traffic and goods are more complicated than pre-reform period. Before and after the reforms, comparing the range of network and wagon destination, as well as the possible path of the goods, the authors conclude that the demand network will be more complicated and competitive in the future. How to organize the transport of goods more convenient and economic after reform is a serious problem.
