Researching and Analyzing the Features of Oil and Demand for Transporting Oil Derivates in the Area of Belgrade

The article reports on a study undertaken to evaluate the transportation of oil and oil derivates (dangerous goods, class 3) in the city of Belgrade. The authors included all transport modes used for carrying oil and oil derivates, including road, rail and water transport, and present the total quantities of transported goods on a percentage basis. The bulk of the article focuses on highway transportation, as this represents 77% of the total quantity of transported oil and oil derivates. The authors discuss the features of demand for transport in terms of time and space that are a basis for the management of transporting dangerous goods and input to defining transportation routes to dangerous goods. Statistics are presented of the quantities of goods transported within different months of the year, different week days and different periods of the day. Demand for transport is highest between August and December. The features of demand for transport in terms of space include origin and the destination of movement in relation to the defined serviced area and traffic network load. Approximately 23% of the movement is local and 38% are transit flows (the remaining could not be determined); transit could be shifted to bypass roads in order to relieve congestion in the inner city area as well as to reduce the level of risk.
