A REGIONAL MODEL FOR COMMODITY AND PASSENGER FLOWS

This paper describes a modeling system for strategic planning of transport for the State of Sao Paulo, Brazil which has proved to be a comprehensive, consistent and flexible tool. In running the model, it was found that increasing the number of commodities had less effect on computing costs than increasing the number of zones. The model provides a framework that is both general and operational on which a large number of planning issues can be tested as they involve regional commodity and passenger transport flow.
