An understanding is provided on how the existing freight transport modes share the Australian freight task, which provided further insight into the corridor mode selection process. It is important to compare modes across all relevant determinants and performance indicators considering the viewpoint of all parties, in order to better understand the mode selection process. The Brisbane – Cairns corridor in Queensland, Australia is used as a case-study to gain an understanding of how each freight mode is currently being used in the line haul freight task along the corridor. This provides a basis for investigating the nature and values of specific freight mode choice determinants and performance indicators for this corridor.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
