ANNUAL AND QUARTERLY MODELS OF FREIGHT TRANSPORTATION AGGREGATES

This paper presents models for long-term and short-term forecasts for various transport modes, discusses results from the models, and plans for their improvement. The author considers that for policy analysis, these models can serve as bases on which to evaluate the impact of change in certain macroeconomic variables, such as the GNP and production indices of certain specific industrial products such as coal and ore, on the behaviour of these transportation aggregates.
