Joint econometric models of freight transport chain and shipment size choice
(), Inge Vierth
() and Gerard de Jong
Abstract: In freight transportation, decisions regarding the choice
of transport mode (or chains of modes) and shipment size are closely
linked. Building on this basic insight, in this paper we estimate and
review various joint econometric models using the Swedish National
Commodity Flow surveys. Robust parameter estimates from this exercise will
be used to update the current deterministic Swedish national freight model
system (the SAMGODS model) to a stochastic one.
