COMPUTER ASSISTED COST ASSESSMENT OF INTERMODAL TRANSPORTATION LINKAGES
The investigators have developed a cost model to determine the societal cost associated with different transportation modes. The different transportation modes used in this analysis include rail, truck, barge and air transportation. The cost model considers the costs incurred by all activities associated with each transportation mode. The developed model has been implemented in PC/Windows based software. The developed cost model has served as the basic structure for the software development effort completed in the second phase of this project. This software enables the user to determine the most effective transportation mode between a given origin and destination.
