| ||Title:||Real cost reduction of door-to-door intermodal transport|
| ||Duration in months:||24|
| ||Project website:||http://www.recordit.org|
| ||Design a comprehensive methodology for the calculation of real (internal + external) costs of intermodal freight transport and for the understanding of cost formation mechanisms. |
Validate this methodology through its application to three meaningful European corridors (including CEEC).
Analyse current charging and taxation systems to understand price formation mechanisms.
Carry out a systematic cost comparison for intermodal and all-road alternatives.
Assess current imbalances and inefficiencies.
Develop a decision support module to foster generalisation.
Identify and analyse technical and organisational cost reduction options.
Formulate recommendations on public policies and business actions to reduce real costs and to internalise external costs.
Promote consensus building among operators and users.
Disseminate project findings (2 workshops, a website). The RECORDIT approach is fully consistent with EU policies and recommended principles on fair and efficient pricing of infrastructure use, the development of sustainable transport and the fostering of a competitive transport market in Europe.
