Estimation of an Origin-Destination Matrix for Urban Freight Transport. Application to the City of Seville

This chapter presents the process followed to estimate an origin-destination matrix for freight transport in the city of Seville. The focus of the paper lies specially on the data acquisition process, which is normally one of the main obstacles to be faced by this type of analysis. The model used, based on entropy maximization, and the solution algorithm, including Frank-Wolfe’s linear approximations, are equally described. Results are presented graphically and then compared with vehicle flows observed from reality, allowing to extract conclusions for the validation of the model.
