INSIGHTS ON FREIGHT AND COMMERCIAL VEHICLE DATA NEEDS. IN: TRANSPORT SURVEY QUALITY AND INNOVATION

The chapter reviews several aspects of freight data collection and use, with a focus on the main differences between the passenger and freight cases relating to their use of data for modeling. Three spatial resolution categories were analyzed in terms of their most relevant data needs: global, intercity and urban scale. Identified and discussed is the classical four-step transport model widely used for personal trip analysis. The above leads to the proposition of an initial new paradigm in freight data collection for planning and modelling. Also discussed are a set of key issues in the freight transport system and the corresponding data collection.
