This paper presents a recent research work on socio-economic impacts of convoy driving on motorways. Two different methods have been employed for the assessment. The cost-benefit analysis method has been found to be very efficient where costs and benefits can be valued monetarily, while data envelopment analysis can deal with discretionary or intangible impacts that cannot reasonably be expressed in monetary units. The results from both assessment methods have shown that motorway convoy driving may have significant socio-economic benefits when the convoy lane is properly fed with convoy traffic.
