IMPROVING THE EFFICIENCY OF ROAD FREIGHT TRANSPORT
The paper dwells on the technical and operational parameters affecting the efficiency of the road transport depending upon the performance of the motor transport enterprise. The paper also presents the justifications of criteria indicators to measure performance of road transport, and describes theoretical foundations of the process of studying and assessing the economic efficiency of motor transport systems. The influence of technical and operational parameters on the change in cost fluctuation of transport operation of motor power through a change in the total mileage and indicators that determine the value of variable and fixed costs: carrying capacity, loaded mileage proportion, utilization range, as well as the vehicle utilization, the average road speed and conveying distance. There have been considered three groups of indicators that define the ways and methods for increasing the efficiency of road freight transport in the existing operating conditions of the motor transport company.
