The development of regular truck freight transportation networks in Japan (Inconnue)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The purpose of this paper is to investigate the process of the extension of regular truck transportation networks over fixed routes in Japan. The author summarized the spatial extention of regular truck service as follows : during the period of rapid economic growth, the distribution system mainly involved the mass transport of bulk cargo. Since the two oil crises, however, the focus has shifted to the transport of small cargo and parcels, requiring speed and high frequency. The network development of regular trucking services over fixed routes should be understood in the context of these socio-economic changes. - (KA)
