The Measurement Of The Performance Of Freight Transportation
László Duma [Department of Transport Economics,Technical University of Budapest]

ABSTRACT
This paper analyses the present role and use of the traditional transportation measurement, namely the (freight)tonne-kilometre. It is argued that this measurement has some limitations to assess properly the real transportation work, and not to characterise the importance of transport modes. Other measurement methods should have to taken into consideration. Monetarisation of transport services or derivative measurement could be the key to properly characterise differentiated freight transport activities and support decision making on both macro- and microeconomic level.

KEYWORDS
freight transportation performance, work, measurement, tonne-kilometre
