This study provides a comprehensive insight into the current economic and legal state of combined transport (CT) operations in the European Union (EU) including all CT sectors and combinations.
EU researchers have developed new reporting software to help Europe’s maritime transport sector achieve cost and time efficiencies.
The EC’s 2011 White Paper on Transport noted that the quality, accessibility and reliability of transport services will gain increasing importance in the coming years. Attractive frequencies, comfort, easy access, reliability of services, and intermodal integration (ie combining the various modes of transport together to best effect) are the main characteristics of service quality.
Sustainable inland waterway development and management in the context of the EU Birds and Habitats Directives
Inland Waterway Transport (IWT) is an efficient, safe and environmentally friendly mode of transport. However,the previously undisputed competitive position of IWT in the field of emissions, in comparison to air, is increasingly being contested. The gap – regarding emissions to air – between road transport and IWT is rapidly becoming smaller. A major concern thereby, is the poor progress made on the emission of air pollutants with in particular, the emission of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM).
