Air pollution is considered the largest threat to human health, a large share of these transport-related emissions being attributable to freight transport. The associated external costs of air pollution are directly linked to the number of vicinal receptors. Studies so far have only considered the static link between the presence of the emission source and the number of its vicinal receptors, often based on the home location, as such making abstraction of individual travel patterns. This research combines both dynamic receptor densities and freight transport emission sources.
