LOAD FACTOR: is the ratio of seat kilometers occupied to seat kilometers offered during a period by an
undertaking. Alternatively it is the ratio of actual earnings to the expected earnings, at full load including
The load factor = Seat kilometers occupied
Seat kilometers offered
•Quality of Roads
= (Passenger kilometers per day) / (Total vehicle kilometers)
= (154.63) / (224.84)
EARNING PER KILOMETER
= (Total Earnings) / (Total Effective Kilometers)
= (5973.05) / (272.82)
= 2189.37 ps.
Fuel efficiency can be termed as the relationship between the distances travelled by the vehicle
upon the fuel consumed by the vehicle (kmpl) (kilometers per liters of fuel)
