Abstract
This research contributes to transportation planning and modeling practices in a number of ways. First, it estimates econometric models of freight production and service trips, which could be used to quantify freight and service activity using secondary data. Secondly, it estimates freight mode choice models which allow for the prediction of the market share split between freight truck and rail modes. Lastly, it uses behavioral models to gain insight into how best to foster off-hour deliveries in congested cities.
