Objectives

Objectives

Support government plans to stabilise truck numbers

Annual road-based survey to monitor:

Container truck numbers

Proportion of container trucks in traffic flow

Container truck types

Container truck loading

11th annual survey

Fiona Callander

November 2012


Method

  • Two survey points, capturing all container traffic

  • Data collected over two consecutive weeks

    • week 1 : 10th to 14th September

    • week 2 : 17th to 21st September

  • Survey carried out over 18 hours, 0500 to 2300hrs

  • Week 1 – all vehicles recorded

  • Week 2 – only container trucks recorded

  • Trucks classified by cargo and axle configuration

  • Number and size of containers carried recorded

  • Lifting capability noted

Method

Tydeman Rd site

How much traffic is there

Tydeman Rd

How much traffic is there?

11% of all vehicles are now container trucks. In 2002, this figure was 5%

Port Beach Rd

2% of all vehicles are now container trucks. In 2002, this figure was 1%

How many container trucks per day

Trade increased by average of 7% pa 2002 to 2012

Truck numbers increased by average of 5% pa 2002 to 2012

How does this vary over the course of the day

How does this vary over the course of the day?

23% of trucks appear before 9am

74% of trucks appear before 3pm

93% of trucks appear before 6pm

Unladen trucks on tydeman road

Unladen trucks on Tydeman Road

33% of container trucks on Tydeman Road are unladen (36% inbound and 29% outbound)

This equates to 740 trucks every 18hr weekday

Unladen trucks on port beach road

Unladen trucks on Port Beach Road

12% of container trucks on Port Beach Road are unladen (14% inbound and 9% outbound)

This equates to 33 trucks every 18hr weekday

How has empty running been changing

How has empty running been changing?

Empty running fell from 29% in 2002 to 24% in 2006 but has risen to 30% in 2012 over a 12 hour day

This is the highest level observed since the survey began

How many teu does each truck carry

How many TEU does each truck carry?

Empty trucks and those with 1 TEU carry only 13% of the TEU task but represent 48% of all trucks

The remaining 52% of trucks carry 87% of the TEU task

Fiona Callander

November 2012


How has this been changing over time

How has this been changing over time?

  • Empty running has trended up

  • The proportion carrying only 1TEU has fallen over time

  • The proportion carrying 2 TEU has been fairly steady

  • The proportion carrying 3 or 4 TEU has risen to 2007 but then has been reducing slightly

What type of truck is servicing the trade

What type of truck is servicing the trade?

The truck fleet is dominated by 6-axle semi-trailers

What are these types of truck carrying

How has truck loading been changing

How has truck loading been changing?

TEU per truck has fallen for the third year in a row

Overall trends since 2002

Overall trends since 2002

Good News:

Truck Growth has not matched trade growth over time

Bad News:

Truck numbers are trending upwards along with the road based TEU task

Truck productivity (TEU/truck) therefore shows little or no improvement over time

Fiona Callander

November 2012


Summary road based container task

  • 12,650 container trucks observed during average survey week

  • These trucks carried a total of 16,260 TEU

  • 11,300 container trucks observed last year carrying a total of 15,030 TEU.

  • 12% increase in trucks but only an 8% increase in TEU task from Aug 2011 to Sep 2012

  • These figures demonstrate lower truck productivity in 2012.

  • The figures for TEU carried tie in well with the 9% cross-wharf trade increase in the 2012 financial year.

Summary – road based container task

Summary truck loading

  • First year of observing 18hrs confirmed early start and some activity in late evening

  • Empty running still stubbornly high

  • Decreased productivity

  • Too many small trucks – low productivity in terms of both capacity and loading

  • More two way loading required

Summary – truck loading
