This paper develops a framework for classifying existing transportation choice research by using two dimensions: the decision(s) being researched and the respondent's role(s) in the decision process. Following a discussion of this framework, the paper then presents the results of an empirical study involving a single decision (international water port selection) evaluated by multiple participants. Both univariate and multivariate analysis indicate that port selection factors are evaluated differently by various participants in international commerce. The paper concludes by discussing possible implications of these divergent views. -from Authors
