The Relationship of Freight Modal Split to Shipper Perceptions of Transportation Service Characteristics

This paper examines the relationship between freight modal split and shipper perceptions of transportation mode service characteristics. This relationship is explored by means of the development of a company level freight modal split model that uses as variables shipper perceptions of transportation mode service characteristics. The modeling effort was directed at two primary accomplishments. First, direct application of such a model in a predictive role could be potentially useful to both buyers and sellers of freight transportation services. Second, and perhaps more important, a successful modeling effort could establish the existence, and perhaps the strength of the relationship between company level modal split and shipper perceptions of the transportation services provided by the modes.
