FREIGHT DEMAND CHARACTERISTICS AND MODE CHOICE: AN ANALYSIS OF THE RESULTS OF MODELING WITH DISAGGREGATED REVEALED PREFERENCE DATA

This paper analyzes the freight demand charactreistics that drive modal choice by means of a large scale, national, disaggregate revealed preference database for shippers in France in 1988, using a nested logit. Particular attention is given to private transportation and combined public and private transportation. After aggregation and validation of discrete choice models, the influence of demand characteristics on freight modal choice is analyzed. The maximum probability of choosing public road transportation takes place at approximately 700 kilometers, while that of choosing rail transportation takes place at 1,300 kilometers.
