Valuing freight transport time and reliability

This research project investigated the willingness to pay of shippers of freight within New Zealand for improvements in expected journey time, reliability of journey times, frequency of freight services and loss/damage to freight in transit. It focused on a stated preference survey (using the contingent valuation methodology) of New Zealand freight shippers, covering some one-third of the New Zealand domestic freight task (measured in tonne-km). It included an extensive international literature review of evidence on the willingness to pay for journey attributes by freight shippers. The primary output was a set of travel time and reliability values for road and rail freight movements in New Zealand, for inclusion in the New Zealand Economic evaluation manual used for the ex-ante economic appraisal of transport projects.
