Abstract [en]

There is an increased need for cost information about rail freight, both among railway undertakings as well as among actors outside the sector. In the scientific field improved cost information is crucial not least as input for mode choice and freight forecasting models. This paper presents EvaRail, a cost model for rail freight developed by the author at the Royal Institute of Technology Stockholm (KTH). The model is based on an Activity-Based Costing approach and covers a wider variety of production systems in rail freight. It allows cost calculations and analyses both on flow-level and on system-level.
