This paper uses data collected in Australia in 2010-2011 on alternative access charge regimes for freight transport, obtained from a stated choice experiment, which is used in estimation of mixed logit models calibrated on vehicle market shares, to derive matrices of direct and cross access charging elasticities that represent the relationship between an access charge (defined by combinations of distance, mass, and location), vehicle class choice, total kilometres, and tonne-kilometres carried in the vehicle class segments. The elasticities can be used to estimate the response of heavy vehicle operators (and shippers) to price signals under the different access charging schemes. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
