Researchers from Lassonde School of Engineering at York University are conducting a survey on commercial vehicles to better understand route choice decisions for inter-regional trips. This survey is part of a larger project funded by the Smart Freight Centre and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC). This study is designed to comprehend routing behavior of Ontario commercial vehicles, attempting to identify influential factors when making route choice, and is seeking to find out a rational truck value of time. The result of this study would help policymakers to have a better understanding of the industry and choose strategies that perform best.
We are looking for individuals familiar with routing decisions (driver, dispatcher, etc.) to fill out this survey.
