Modeling of Transport Processes in Terms of Seasonality of Transport

Open access

Abstract

The company’s success depends on many factors. One of them is the ability to meet the customers’ expectations and adjust to the needs reported by market. Mathematical methods and tools are helpful in assessing demand. Forecasts should take into account all factors shaping the demand for goods and services, but they are often difficult to define, not only because of their large number, but also due to the impact of individual variables, which is difficult to determine. In many cases, the number of placed orders strongly depends on the time at which they are submitted. The needs can vary according to the time of day, week and year. Then we are dealing with the so-called seasonality, the inclusion of which is very important in the company and enables to better adapt its activity to the customers’ requirements.

This article describes the seasonality of demand in a company providing domestic and road transport services with high-tonnage vehicles. The validity of such analyses and potential benefits were indicated.
