1 Alternatives and terminals Measures to promote intermodal transport Subgroup Hans Silborn, Norway Wanda Debauche, Belgium Csaba Orosz, Hungary Jean-Charles Poutchy-Tixier, France Martin Ruesch, Switzerland

2 Results from last period Statistical trends in different modes of transport Statistical trends in different modes of transport –EU: Road and coastal shipping are growing. Rail has declined. –USA, Australia: Rail continues to grow on long distances. Road dominates on shorter trip lengths. –Japan: Road dominates. Rail has focus on passenger services. Future trends Future trends –Increased policy focus on the environmental impact –Improved transport management –Development of new transport technologies –New regulation forms –Increased focus on safety standard –Financial support to intermodal transport solutions

3 Results from last period Logistic platforms Logistic platforms –Obstacles to intermodal transport –Effects generated by logistic platforms –Conditions for success Consequences for our work this period: –Study measures to overcome the obstacles to intermodal transport –Focus on governmental measures to support intermodal transport and terminals. What is the roll of public sector? –Best practise in encouraging alternatives to road transport

4 Work plan of subgroup Gather and present best practise of measures to promote intermodal transport Road access improvements to inter modal facilitiesRoad access improvements to inter modal facilities Measures to support an effective terminal structure and more effective individual freight terminals, as well as new intermodal transport solutionsMeasures to support an effective terminal structure and more effective individual freight terminals, as well as new intermodal transport solutions 2. Guidance on methods for evaluation of effects of intermodal solutions If we find any evaluations. We think this will be a problem.If we find any evaluations. We think this will be a problem.

5 Outputs Report on best practise of measures to promote intermodal transport Report on best practise of measures to promote intermodal transport Report on methods for evaluation of effects of intermodal solutions (this is uncertain) Report on methods for evaluation of effects of intermodal solutions (this is uncertain) Article in Routes/Roads about public measures to promote intermodal transport Article in Routes/Roads about public measures to promote intermodal transport

6 How to find best practise? Web-sites Web-sites Literature study Literature study Questionnaire survey Questionnaire survey Knowledge in the committee Knowledge in the committee Please feel free to contact anyone in the committee if you have information of good practise to support intermodal transport

7 Examples of measures to promote intermodal transport Types of measures: Investments in rail, waterway and road infrastructure Investments in rail, waterway and road infrastructure Legislation, regulation and organisation Legislation, regulation and organisation Subsides to intermodal facilities Subsides to intermodal facilities Research and development Research and development

8 Examples of measures to promote intermodal transport Investments in rail, waterway and road infrastructure Investments in rail, waterway and road infrastructure –Increased capacity in rail and seaway infrastructure –TEN –Interconnection between modes –Trunk road connections to intermodal freight terminals

9 Examples of measures to promote intermodal transport Legislation, regulation and organisation Legislation, regulation and organisation –Higher maximum gross weight for vehicles used in intermodal transport –Exemption from certain driving regulations and fees for vehicles used in intermodal transport –Intermodal transport units in the governmental organisation

10 Examples of measures to promote intermodal transport Subsides to intermodal facilities –Allowed within the EU –Marco Polo –Subsidies to intermodal freight terminals (investments in infrastructure, tracks, cranes, lifts etc.) in for example the Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Switzerland –Governmental aid schemes to combined transport in for example Germany, France, Italy, Great Britain, Switzerland, Austria and Belgium
