Abstract

Efficiency of freight transport system is vital to the economy of each country. It is often said that freight transport is life-blood of the economic organism of the country. However, in contrast to the importance of freight transport, this sector of transport is less investigated and its performance is at least known among decision makers and even among professionals. Issues related to how much cargo is transported, where the cargo is being shipped, by which mode the freight is transported, what is the efficiency of the transport process, very often remain without precise answer. Without clear answers to these and other similar questions we cannot know the real state of the transport system. In fact, we only feel the consequences of inadequate functioning of the system. For creating transport policies and making strategic business and economic decisions at all levels, it is necessary to have information on the freight transport system and its performance. The term performance in this case means a parameter or group of parameters which are interdependent and which are the main indicators of efficiency of the freight transport system. In this paper we consider the following five performance criteria: freight transport intensity, freight transport productivity, truck fleet utilization, costs of trucking operations, and service quality. Consideration of these criteria is supported by an empirical example which is based on available data on freight transport in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
