INDICADORES ECONOMICOS EN EL AUTOTRANSPORTE FEDERAL DE CARGA

La relevancia economica del autotransporte de carga resalta por su amplio uso moviendo insumos para el sector productivo y distribuyendo su produccion. Al operar, el autotransporte utiliza personal, vehiculos, combustibles, e infraestructura vial; pero tambien genera impactos indeseados como la congestion, la contaminacion ambiental y los accidentes. Considerando la planeacion del transporte nacional, la Direccion General de Autotransporte Federal (DGAF) de la Secretaria de Comunicaciones y Transportes, en su objetivo de impulsar una operacion eficiente y de calidad del transporte carretero que contribuya a su modernizacion, ha buscado desarrollar indicadores economicos para evaluar a este subsector. Por ello, en 2009 la DGAF solicito al Instituto Mexicano del Transporte un estudio de indicadores para el subsector, el cual es el objeto de este trabajo. Luego de revisar la informacion del autotransporte disponible en Mexico, y las practicas internacionales en paises avanzados, este trabajo propone unos indicadores economicos del autotransporte de carga para medir su desempeno en cuanto a su estructura, su operacion y sus caracteristicas macroeconomicas. Estos indicadores serviran para observar la evolucion del autotransporte de carga y mediran su desempeno, apoyando asi la planeacion del sistema nacional de transporte para mejorar su eficiencia y la calidad que ofrece a sus usuarios. Abstract: The economic importance of road freight transport stands out due to its extensive use by moving inputs for the productive sector and distributing its production. On operation, motor carriers utilize personnel, vehicles, fuel, and transportation infrastructure, and also generate undesirable impacts such as congestion, pollution and accidents. Considering the national transportation planning, the General Directorate of Federal Motor Carrier (DGAF) of the Secretariat of Communications and Transports, in its aim to promote efficient operation and quality of road transport to contribute to its modernization, has sought to develop economic indicators evaluating this subsector. Therefore in 2009 the DGAF asked the Mexican Transportation Institute a study of indicators for the subsector, which is the subject of this work. After reviewing the information available in Mexico for road transport, and the international practices in advanced countries, this work proposes some economic indicators for trucking to measure their performance in terms of its structure, operation and macroeconomic characteristics. These indicators will be used to observe the evolution of road freight transport and measure its performance, supporting thus the planning of the national transportation system to improve its efficiency and the quality which offers its users.
