A Reference Model for Determining Road Toll Charges

Activity: Talk or presentationScience to science

Description

In recent years, numerous European countries have introduced tolls as a means of traffic guidance and control. These policy decisions have significantly affected entire economic regions as well as individual companies along the supply chain. For transport companies (especially for carriers), passing the additionally incurred cost to the (final) customer as reasonably as possible therefore is of utmost importance. We propose a reference model which involves solving a network problem based on effective toll distances that allows for determining the additional toll costs for individual shipments.
