Traditional and Light Commercial Vehicles Sharing Transport in the City – Cost Assessment

Piotr Banaszyk , Szymon Grabański , Hubert Igliński


The article is devoted to the assessment of the cost-effectiveness of using light commercial vehicles sharing (LCV-sharing) method in urban transport. The fast growing population of the world (7.6 bn), the increasing urbanization exemplified by the increasing number of cities over one million inhabitants and megacities with over ten million inhabitants (33) results in growing number of cars and congestion, emission and concentration of GHG, noise and air pollution are becoming global concerns. Due to the assumption of sharing economy, progressive congestion and air pollution in the city of Poznań, the authors decided to look at the LCV-sharing possibilities in that city. Simulation of transport costs, as a main method used in this paper, was adopted in the conditions of purchasing own fleet of vehicles (for cash or leased) in comparison to using shared vehicles. Research results indicate that self-transport is profitable after exceeding a certain scale and frequency of freight transport. Authors drew the attention to the problem of advertising this type of sharing possibilities in the society, especially between entrepreneurs, and the problem of the cost of LCV-sharing.
