Utility, rail transport, water transport, freight


The paper describes the problematice of a freight transport supply chain choice taking account the utility. The utility function is mostly calculated from the container transport statistics. Container transport refers to the transportation of goods in standardized re-sealable transportation boxes by rail and sea. The utility theory is mostly connected with the consumer and consumption theory. When thinking of transport services, demand (consumer) and suppliers influence the decision making process of transport. Three key factors are identified: environmental efficiency, time
and transportation capacity
