Development of Trip Generation Model for Goods Movement of Gozaria and Visnagar G.I.D.C.
Keywords:Freight transport, truck trip, Regression analysis, truck trip generation
Freight transportation is very important for development of nation. Generally Freight Transportation on
highway is carried out by trucks. The aim of this paper is to developed truck trip generation model for Gozaria and
Visnagar GIDC. The company travel diary survey has been carried out by company by the survey. The model has been
developed using multiple linear regression analysis by Regression Tool of MS Excel, which establishes relationship
between the daily number of truck trips per day generated by the total floor area of industries, total weight of production
in tonne and total weight of raw material in tonne. A general model for truck trip generation has been developed. The
model result gave an effective value of R2 equal to 0.9421, indicating that the explanatory variables included in the
model explain 94.21% of the dependent variable. The model also validated by Mehsana GIDC. Accurate forecasting of
future truck trips using this model can be done.
