Hello,

As I understand does the transport model from ecoinvent use a rather simple method that assumes a 50% payload. This is because the model considers one trip with a full load and an empty return leg.

For example, if you are transporting 100 tons from point A to point B over a distance of 10 km by lorry, the total amount of ton-kilometers (tkm) calculated for the model would be:

$100t×10km×2(for the round trip)=2,000tkm$

$Is that correct and is there an easy way to model a transport with a full load for both ways?$

Thank you for your help.
