The EU Regulation 913/2010 concerning a European rail network for competitive freight transport includes as main part the development of certain rail freight corridors (RFC). RFC 5 includes the railway connection between Gdynia in Poland and the Mediterranean harbours in Italy and Slovenia.
The main objective of the Transport Market Study for European Rail Freight Corridor 5 is to provide a clear understanding of the current conditions of the multimodal freight market along the Corridor together with short- and long-term freight traffic forecasts consequent to the implementation of the Corridor at the end of year 2015, and also to propose a measurement of the expected modal shift from road to rail. For this purpose, the institute of transports studies of BOKU, Vienna will conduct a stated-preference survey in all six countries along the RFC5. The TMS will analyse and present the main market elements of the corridor and contribute to the preparation of the Implementation Plan of the Corridor.
