Increasingly in Australia, trucking is an essential feature of economic activity, with road being the only mode possible for much freight traffic (eg in cities), and with rail tending to be less competitive than road on many intercity links.
Articles in the issue: Stevedoring productivity, waterfront reliability, Port Interface cost index, Port performance-non financial and crew to berth ratios.
Transport models have been used for several decades now, both for research, and as an analytical tool to assist planners and decision-makers.
Australian cities have been transformed from fairly tightly knit core-and-spoke configurations, to sprawling suburban low-density configurations.
The paper provides information on coastal freight movements between Australian ports. It covers cargoes loaded and discharged at Australian ports during 1997–1998.
