DISTANCE AND TRANSPORT COST CALCULATOR

 

 

 

 

 

 

Evaluation of lengths (distances), main intermediate nodes (capitals) and 

truck transport cost estimates for shortest paths connecting 251 European regional capitals

            

For the theoretical

background  of the applied methodology mouse-click on the following file (section 1.4.3, pages 12-14):

 

European Regions:

Theoretical Backround

 

Steps to follow

 

Calculation of shortest path length and corresponding truck transport cost between regional capitals: "Origin Capital" and "Destination Capital":

 

1. Locate "Origin Capital" in the second column of this  page and the name of corresponding  region, say "Origin Region"

 

2. Go to the third column of this page and mouse click on the "Origin Region"

 

3. Go to the section 

4.3  of corresponding report titled "Distances and truck transport cost estimates of shortest paths to European regional capitals" and locate 

the entry "Distance between Origin Capital and Destination Capital" which contains the desired information

 

Example

 

Calculation of  shortest path length and corresponding truck transport cost between Sevilla, Spain (Origin Capital) and Tripoli, Greece (Destination Capital):

 

1. From the second column we get the corresponding Origin Region which is "Andalucia"

 

2. We mouse-click on "Andalucia (Spain)" in the third colu mn and open corresponding report

 

3. The relevant entry of the report gives  the desired information:

- Distance between Sevilla and Tripoli :  3697km.

Shortest path:Tripoli,Patras( 203), Potenza( 719),Genoa( 849), Marseille( 400),Montpellier( 168), Barcelona( 343),Sevilla( 1015),

Note. Path Patras-Potenza (723): Patras-Igoumenitsa=239 Ferry Igoumenitsa-Brindisi=254 Brindisi-Potenza=230

Corresponding transport cost= 2068 euros

 

*: The numbers in parentheses give the lengths of corresponding intermediate road axes. For example, the number 168 next to Montpellier gives the length (in km) of the intermediate road axis Marseille-Montpellier.
