Institut Cerdà has developed the calculation tool that provides reliable data relating fuel costs to overall container transport costs in the port area.
The tool has been developed by Institut Cerdà. It has been formally presented at the Port of Barcelona by Pere Padrosa, General Director of Transport and Mobility of the Generalitat of Catalonia; Mercè Conesa, President of the Port of Barcelona and Julián Arenas, Director of Innovation and Transport-Logistics at Institut Cerdà. The tool was launched as a result of the study "Fluctuation of the cost of fuel and the externality of time in road transport". This study, also by Institut Cerdà, analysed the different factors that affect the costs of the transport of goods by road.
