Report of the hundred and fifth [i.e. fifteenth] Round Table on Transport Economics, held in Paris on 4th-5th November 1999 on the following topic: road freight transport for own account in Europe, Issue 115
European Conference of Ministers of Transport, May 16, 2001 - Transportation - 132 pages
Road freight transport for own account represents a major share of inland transport in Europe and, depending on the country concerned, accounts for two to five times the tonnage carried by rail. Despite its importance, however, own account transport tends to be overlooked since it is not regarded as a logistics activity, whereas it is, in fact, a vital transport function that is changing radically as firms increasingly outsource their distribution activities to commercial hauliers.
