THE BURDENS OF THE COST. THE EFFECTS OF PASSING ON INFRASTRUCTURE AND EXTERNAL COST TO GOODS TRANSPORT

DE LASTEN VAN DE KOSTEN. EFFECTEN VAN DOORBEREKENING VAN INFRASTRUCTUUR- EN EXTERNE KOSTEN AAN GOEDERENVERVOER

In the European Union it is intended to fully pass on the infrastructure and external cost to goods transport. As a preparation for the Dutch position, some research has been carried out to get insight into the effects to be expected with respect to this item beforehand. It has turned out that the Dutch market share for road and inland waterway freight transport will increase with 2 percent up to 48 and 49 percent respectively. Consequently the market share for rail transport will decrease from 7 to 3 percent.In the year 2015, the net result for the Dutch economy as a whole is a slight loss of 0.02 percent of added value, and a modest decline of employment of 0.07 percent. On the other hand, from the government's point of view a situation would be reached in which the transport sector is paying for their related cost.
