Modelling Transport

Hi all,

When modelling transport (kg x km), I'm wondering how to to differentiate between the number of trucks required to move a particular weight. For example, modelling the transport of 1 tonne of PET granules may require 1 truck, whereas the transport of that same 1 tonne of PET bottles (much larger volume but equal weight!) will require exponentially more trucks to travel the same distance.

As far as I can tell this isn't captured without additional parameters.

Please advise if possible - any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
