SOME RECENT THINKING ON FREIGHT TRANSPORT PRICING IN FRANCE AND SWITZERLAND

Two studies on the general organisation of transport systems, conducted in France and Switzerland, have examined the problem of freight transport pricing. Both the studies were inspired by increasing dissatisfaction with current transport policies and financial commitments by governments to cover railway operating deficits. The article reviews the main conclusions of the studies with emphasis on the recommendations concerning transport pricing. These are said to oppose the interventionist policies which have been a feature of transport policy in many countries.
