BSL carries out the „2014 Report on Combined Transport“ on behalf of the UIC

On behalf of the Union Internationale des Chemins de Fer (UIC), BSL Transportation Consultants carried out the bi-annual European survey on combined rail/ road transport for the “2014 report on combined transport”.

The report provides a comprehensive overview of the current situation of combined transport in Europe, compiling up-to-date information on rail/ road combined transport volumes for the year 2013 for all market segments and gathering the market participants’ assessment on market structures and future developments.

For this purpose, a market survey on combined transport across all European countries has been conducted. This also included an online questionnaire which was distributed among the major stakeholder groups in combined transport.

A particular focus of the 2014 report lies on the EU Rail Freight Corridors which are examined regarding their importance for intermodal transportation and the combined transport terminal infrastructure connected.

Further emphasis is placed on the analysis of seaport traffic and hinterland transportation in terms of throughput volumes in European seaports, operational needs and the role of rail in seaborne hinterland transportation.

In addition, the 2014 report gives an overview of national measures and programmes in favour of combined transport in Europe.

For more details on the “2014 Report on Combined Transport”, please see the UIC website.
