OPERATING COSTS IN ROAD FREIGHT TRANSPORT- (A STUDY OF THE COSTS OF OPERATING ROAD GOODS VEHICLE FLEETS AND OF THE PERFORMANCE AND COSTS OF RUNNING VEHICLES OF DIFFERENT TYPES AND SIZES)

THIS REPORT IS THE RESULT OF A SURVEY OF OPERATORS' COSTS IN THE ROAD HAULAGE INDUSTRY CARRIED OUT BY THE MINISTRY OF TRANSPORT IN 1966. THE COSTS OF 2150 PUBLIC HAULAGE FLEETS AND 2100 "C" LICENCE FLEETS WERE ANALYZED, TOGETHER WITH THOSE OF 4000 PUBLIC HAULAGE VEHICLES AND 6000 "C" LICENCE VEHICLES. THE STUDY WAS AIMED AT ESTABLISHING TOTAL EXPENDITURE BY ROAD HAULAGE OPERATORS DURING 1965, AND THE COMPOSITION OF THAT EXPENDITURE WITH RESPECT TO SUCH FACTORS AS FLEET AND VEHICLE SIZE. THE LABOR FORCE EMPLOYED IN THE ROAD HAULAGE INDUSTRY WAS ALSO INVESTIGATED TOGETHER WITH THE NATURE AND STRUCTURE OF VEHICLES AND FLEETS, E.G., AGE-DISTRIBUTION OF VEHICLES, MILEAGE, HOURS WORKED, AND VEHICLE COMPOSITION OF FLEETS). PART I OF THIS REPORT DEALS WITH THE TOTAL EXPENDITURE ON ROAD TRANSPORT; EMPLOYMENT AND OUTPUT IN ROAD TRANSPORT; AND CHARACTERISTICS OF, AND WORK DONE BY, VEHICLES AND FLEETS. PART II CONSISTS OF STATISTICAL MODELS USED FOR DETERMINING THE RELATIVE IMPORTANCE OF FACTORS INFLUENCING FLEET AND VEHICLE COSTS; AND ANALYSES, IN TABULAR FORM, OF FLEET AND VEHICLE OPERATING COSTS. /TRRL/
