The value of transport time variability

To improve the valuation of the reliability of freight transport in socio-economic calculations, extensive work has been done in several previous projects to determine how the value of transport time variability (VTTV) should be appropriately estimated. In these projects, a model has been developed and a case study has been carried out (Andersson et.al, 2017)

A main study is now being conducted during 2019-2020 on behalf of the Swedish Transport Administration. The purpose of the main study is to use the model developed to estimate values for transport time variation and then use these estimated values in socio-economic calculations. This will lead to greater regard for the reliability of freight transport, which is positive both in terms of the efficiency of transport and the benefit of society.
