To gain a better understanding of the distribution of freight and commercial traffic in the Greater Sydney Metropolitan Region (GSMR).

The collection was a 12-month sample survey of 10,000 non-privately registered vehicles in the GSMR and was conducted in respect of 1991-92. It collected vehicle and travel details for the sampled commercial vehicles over a nominated 24-hour period.
