  • The number of independent and interdependent freight actors (firms), the complex supply chain structures between them, and the sensitivity of shipment data are some reasons that the modeling of freight traffic is lagging its public and private transit counterparts. An agent-based approach was used to reconstruct commercial activity chains and simulate them, along with private vehicles, for a large-scale scenario in Gauteng, South Africa. The simulated activities were compared with the actual… CONTINUE READING
