|Abstract: ||In a growing globalised context and consumption economy freight transport is of crucial importance. Being able to understand the drivers of freight flows makes it possible to forecast freight flows in the future and to calculate the impact of different policies on freight traffic. This will put policymakers in the position to get a better insight in the way the transport of goods comes about. Still, freight demand modelling is lacking behind on the efforts made in passenger transport models. For this the development of a comprehensive and reliable freight transport model is essential. In this paper a conceptual freight transportation framework is proposed. Special attention is paid to the different consolidation options of a forwarder.|
