A truck starts with a load 10 tonnes of goods from station P. It unloads 4 tonnes at station Q and rest of the goods at station R. It reaches back directly to station P after getting reloaded with 8 tonnes of goods at station R. The distance between P to Q, Q to R and then from R to P is 40 Kms., 60 Kms., and 80 Kms. respectively. Compute (1) Absolute Tonnes-Kilometres and (2) Commercial Tonnes-Kilometres

Capacity (in tones 2 6 5 each) A Transport Company maintains a fleet of vehicles for carrying goods between two places, particulars of which are as follows: Each vehicle makes 5 trips a day covering a distance of 10 Kms. in each trip. On an average 10% of the vehicles are laid up for repairs daily and 80% of capacity of each vehicle is actually used. If the company operates 25 days in a month, calculate the total tonne kilometers per month carried by the company.

A city municipally arranges for the removal of its garbage by means of motor vehicle transport. The following vehicles are maintained: No. of Vehicles Specifications 20 5 tonnes lorries 30 4 tonnes lorries 50 3 tonnes lorries 40 2 tonnes lorries On an average each lorry makes six trips a day and in each trip covers an average distance of five km. Each lorry carries garbage weighing only 60% of its capacity. Taking an annual average, 20% of the lorries are laid up for repairs every day. The garbage clearing work is carried on daily.
