POSSIBILITIES OF DEVELOPING REGIONAL FREIGHT FLOW STATISTICS

As a framework for the estimation of regional freight flow the author uses a four step model: (1) generation of freight; (2) distribution of freight; (3) modal choice; and (4) assignment. The author then turns to some of the methods that could be used in order to gather knowledge of the flow of goods. Described are the questionnaire survey method, the network estimation procedure and a hybrid method. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 876615.
