El enfoque microeconómico en la estimación de la demanda de transporte de mercancías. Análisis desde una perspectiva regional
Despite the widely recognized significance of freight transport for a region’s economy, the field of transportation science has focused traditionally on the analytical modeling of passenger systems, relegating the analysis of freight transportation. This paper reviews the methodological framework underlying freight transportation demand analysis, from the microeconomic perspective. Particularly, it presents the main characteristics of this approach, the different types of models available and their corresponding econometric method of estimation. The exposition concludes with a comparative evaluation of these.
