AN ANALYSIS OF FREIGHT NETWORKS

The objective of this study is the analysis of freight networks emanating from major urban areas. Freight networks, as measured by the market share held by the major modes, are of interest to carriers, shippers, regional planners, and transportation economists. These groups are concerned not only with a description of the modal share of the market but also with the reasons why shares differ. With this information, comparisons of various urban areas can be made and the possibility of predicting future shares exists. The research reported herein attempts to add to the understanding of freight networks by analyzing 25 production areas.
