Download

Summary: For five international freight relations with origin or destination in Sweden, a total of fifteen alternative transport chains have been studied:

- Case 1: Container transport from Hamburg to Eskilstuna

- Case 2: Trailer transport from Düsseldorf to Smedjebacken

- Case 3: Transport of sawn timber from Norrköping to Rochefort

- Case 4: Transport of steel from Borlänge to Benelux

- Case 5: Container transport from Gävle to Hamburg

The analysis comprises a) the marginal external costs of the transports, b) the federal infrastructure charges and taxes paid and c) the degree to which external costs are internalized. Road, rail and sea are included separately or in combination in the alternative transport chains. Assumptions are made concerning vehicle and vessel sizes, utilization rates and routes. The description refers to the situation in autumn 2012.
