PROPOSALS FOR A MODEL OF INTRA-STATE FREIGHT MOVEMENTS

The need for a model of intra-state freight movements is shown and suitable data sources are identified. The system to be modelled is defined as the primary and secondary production and final consumption of goods in a state. A linear programming model which minimises total transport costs is found to be suitable. A current pilot study is described. The study uses a simplified model, but the same data sources. Some difficulties in obtaining data are identified. /TRRL/
