Currently the "Branching Penalty" to Logistics is based on the number of Hexes with branches - when it should be based on the number of branches.

Consider a case where you need to have 4 roads go off a main artery:
If you make one hex with all 4 outgoing roads, the Branching Count is 1.
If you got 4 hexes with one branch each outgoing, the Branching count is 4.

While it is pretty easy to work around it (I just make sure all branching happens in the hex with the logistic assets - usually the city), it is one of those annoying things to learn.

It should not be too hard to just count the number of Branches for each hex (Nr. of Roads leaving -2, min 0) as opposted to the number of hexes with > 3 leaving Roads. And multiply the free branching/divide the branching penalty by 3-6, depending how much branching is supposed to happen.
But maybe there was an issue with such a implementation I am not aware off?

I agree though branching as a whole can often be mitigated by just branching less and having the branches wind through the assets that aren't on the main line rather than what I often see is a branch for each little asset off the main line.
