A new tool allows the evolution of the price of fuel for container transporters at the port of BCN

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.



The main objective of the tool is to offer, both to haulage contractors operating in the port of Barcelona and to the companies of the Port Community, a tool to calculate the cost of transport of containers by road. The tool is designed to provide objective data on the evolution of the price of fuel that is useful in their mutual contractual relationship.
