Capacity pricing schemes to implement open-access rail in Tanzania
15 September 2014
BY: PEÑA-ALCARAZ Maite, Ignacio Pérez-Arriaga, SUSSMAN Joseph M.
We analyze alternative capacity pricing schemes (access charges) to implement an open-access railway system in Tanzania. We show that the implementation of variable access charges widely used in the railway industry may result in levels of traffic lower than the traffic operated by an integrated railway company. We propose the use of fixed access charges to avoid this problem and discuss the main advantages and disadvantages to implement them in the context of multiple freight train services in Tanzania.
