Estimation of truck hauling costs in mountainous forest areas

Record Faculty of Forestry, Sokoine University of Agriculture: ( 46)
Estimation of truck hauling costs in mountainous forest areas
In mountainous areas, road grade and road alignment are the major factors influencing truck speed and truck hauling costs. This study illustrates the methodological procedures involved in estimating total truck hauling costs as a function of road grade and road alignment. Regression analysis shows that there is a high correlation between fuel consumption, grade and truck speed.
