Abstract


The connections between nodes in Freight Transportation Networks (FTNs) are highly complex. With the topological modelling of real world FTNs, this paper introduces quantitative indicators, such as degree distribution and edge/node betweenness centrality, to analyze the topological connectivity. The exponential laws of degree distribution and edge/node betweenness centrality are shown by numerical results on the coal transportation network in Shanxi, China.
