Abstract

Japan suffers from a serious labour shortage, particularly in the carrier industry. Analyses the deviation between the demand and supply of truck drivers through a forecasting model based on multiple regression analysis. Proposes the following solutions: establish co‐operative terminals on a basis of regional economic blocks; design optimal sites of terminal depots; and promote both modal linkage and modal shift to arrange infrastructure.
