LINEAR SYSTEMS MODEL OF FREIGHT DEMAND WITHIN A COMPREHENSIVE PLANNING APPROACH. ABRIDGMENT

As an alternative to solving the problem involved in urban freight demand analysis, this study has discussed the linear systems model according to the social accounts approach and completely separate from the passenger travel demand model. At first glance, it would seem this alternative method would impose an enormous burden, but the magnitude of economics that can be achieved by combining the freight UTP processes with other studies within a comprehensive urban-regional planning process can be demonstrated. In developing a methodology for the freight UTP process, this paper attempts to demonstrate that the basic freight UTP process may be designed within a combined comprehensive planning approach. The freight UTP process developed here is characterized by the spatial-general-equilibrium implementation of regional aggregate analysis, locational analysis for allocation of activities, and commodity (goods and services) and freight demand analysis. /Author/
