Freight modal energy efficiency: A comparison model

Parajuli, Ashis, Ferreira, Luis, & Bunker, Jonathan M. (2003) Freight modal energy efficiency: A comparison model. In Conference of Australian Institutes of Transport Research, 3-5 December 2003, University of South Australia, Adelaide.


This paper describes the findings of a state-of-the-art literature review on the energy consumption of land based freight transport modes and outlines the development of a model to compare corridor energy consumption of road and rail options. The key parameters influencing the energy estimation and comparison procedure are identified and a methodology to compare door to door freight movement is provided.

Search Google Scholar™

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.
