The location and development of cities and industries are
closely related to the availability of raw materials and other
inputs of production, and to the presence of people. Where there is
movement of people, and production and transport of goods and
materials, there are petroleum products consumed.
The demand for petroleum transport is a derived demand, since
movement of petroleum products results from decisions made in other
sections of the economy concerning production, consumption and sales
of goods and services. These decisions may have little to do with
petroleum transport, but lead to the demand for petroleum and hence
for petroleum transport.
Petroleum products and petroleum transport are related because
anything that affects the demand for petroleum products also affects
the demand for petroleum transport. However, the demand for
petroleum transport may be affected without affecting the demand for the petroleum products themselves, since technological, regulatory
and other charges may affect the way in which the distribution task
is carried out. Because of the nature or demand of petroleum
transport, carriers must be sensitive to conditions that prevail in
the markets for petroleum products to accurately forecast their
demand picture and to plan their marketing strategies.
