ACTION PLAN ON THE COMPETITIVENES OF THE RAILWAY FREIGHT TRANSPORT IN THE VISEGRAD (V4) COOPERATION AREA

Zoltan Jerney, Karoly Bodnar

Abstract


The railway freight transport is essential for those countries in Central Europe which do not have seaports. On the other hand there is a continuous competition between the different modes of transportation. The aim of the study was the elaboration of recommendations in order to increase the competitiveness of railway transportation mode.

A general overview of the European transport market and a present status quo of the multi-modal freight transport were presented. The main proposals were the following: closer cooperation of the countries, unified support system for multi-modal transport, development of IT solutions, development of infrastructure on the borders.

Keywords


logistics; railway freight transport; Visegrad cooperation (V4); multi-modal transport; single wagon load
