摘要: This paper applies concepts from the theory of Real Options to hedge uncertainty in trans- 26 portation capacity and cost using derivative contracts, called truckload options. We make 27 three contributions. First, we provide a closed-form pricing formula for basic truckload 28 options when the truckload spot price on a given lane follows a simple mean-reverting pro- 29 cess. Second, since only monthly statistics about truckload spot prices are currently avail- 30 able, we provide an approach to estimate the parameters needed to value truckload 31 options. Finally, a numerical illustration based on real data shows that truckload options 32 could be valuable to both shippers and carriers.
