|dc.description.abstract||This paper examines the utilisation of commercial vehicles in the
greater Sydney metropolitan region. It is based on an analysis of
data from the 1991/92 Commercial Vehicle Survey (CVS)
undertaken by the Transport Data Centre at the Department of
Transport in New South Wales, Australia. This survey provides
prima facie evidence that vehicle productivity could be improved.
Data is presented on the proportion of the vehicles working on an
average week day, the average number of trips made on any one day
and the average time spent travelling each day. Notwithstanding the
fact that the results could be biased due to survey response factors
and the knowledge that there was a recession in 1991/92, the values
for these indices are relatively low. The paper considers possible
reasons for the low level of vehicle utilisation and the implications
for road network planning and logistics management.||en_AU|
