Economical Aspects Regarding Combined Transport in Europe

Efficient transport is the key of a developed economy. Every society searches for alternatives for road transport which is polluted and with higher costs. A successful solution is combined transport, which is friendly for the environment, economy and the society as a whole. Combined transport improves the green performance of freight transport in Europe. The present study approaches the forms of combined transport and the standards for efficient combined transport services. It gives a statistical overview of European Union combined transport and it concludes with solutions to boost the efficiency in combined transport. The main objective of this paper is to highlight the effectiveness and importance that has combined transport for the transport industry, but also for the entire society. In support of this scientific approach are legislation and research studies and reports conducted by various organisations of the European Union in this area. The final purpose of the paper is to transmit the essential data about combined transport in Europe to interested parts, in order to bring a small contribution to their decision making.
