Method for calculating shipping costs in transporting heterogeneous cargo

Abstract


A shipping costs calculation method, based on the notion of a generic transportation resoure, is suggested for improving quality of decisions made in costs and pricing management. Comparative results of applying different methods for calculating shipping costs are illustrated using real-world examples. Generic load coefficient of a transportation vehicle is considered as a criterion for estimating the efficiency of utilizing a transportation vehicle.
