Abstract

The current paper presents the assessment made on the environmental impact of goods transport with a special emphasis on agricultural and related products. The methods used were based on the concepts of system analysis and resource re-cycling. After conducting inventory assessments, a simulation model, MODTRANS, was developed to describe the transport system (both for collections and distributions of goods) and to predict emissions emanated from the vehicles used in the system.
