    for accurate forecasting freight volumes as part of the travel demand forecasting process. Freight demand forecasting is a complex process and has not been explored in the same degree as travel demand forecasting for passenger vehicles. The PDF Handbook summarises over twenty years of research on rail demand forecasting, providing guidance on aspects such as the effects of service quality, fares and external factors on rail demand. It is recognised within the industry as the key source of evidence in this area, which is reflected by the board membership of the scheme.

    He is the Project Lead for Integrated Business Planning globally across Chaucer’s three operational centers in France, USA & China. He also manages the Central Supply Chain team based in the UK, ensuring the delivery of their customers’ requirements through the effective management of capacity planning and freight delivery at a global level. Over the years, the issue of freight rates has been a thorn in the flesh for most cargo owners in regard to its calculations and modalities of its arrival concept for each cargo, by vessel owners. This paper reviews the nature, constituents and concepts of freight rates and forecasting strategy as it concerns each cargo calculation as against freight : O Ndikom.
