Abstract [en]

For many freight transport flows, several modes (e.g. road, rail, inland waterway transport) are available. Mode choice models try to explain the allocation of a given total freight transport demand to these modes. The explanatory variables usually include transport time and cost, but there can be other influences as well (such as transport time reliability). This chapter provides a review of the basic disaggregate choice theory in the context of freight mode choice. It also discusses choice in freight transport that are sometimes included together with mode choice in joint models. Practical examples are provided of aggregate and disaggregate mode choice models and joint models.
