According to theory, carriers' speeds vary positively with freight prices and negatively with fuel prices. The current paper tests these hypotheses using micro panel data on inland waterway trips, made in North-west Europe in the period 2003-7. We find that the freight price elasticity of speed is 0.17 and the fuel price elasticity of speed is 0.11. © 2012 LSE and the University of Bath
